Today, I finished the red and black scarf, and cast on another, in mixed pastels and a mesh stitch of my own devising. The yarn is a complicated and hard-to-manage mix of three strands: a ladder, a strand of laceweight silk/mohair, and laceweight metallic. The best part about the yarn is that the price tag reads $21.95, but I only paid $1/skein. Yay, secondhand shopping.

This business of knitting scarves for charity could become a habit. It's busting my stash, and giving me a warm glow of usefulness. In the past, I've given Friends of the Elephant Seal my extras; this is the first year I've dedicated a concerted effort to make things just for them.
