Another Scarf

I just love doing scarves! Haha, not really, but a request was made. Here is the beginning of D's scarf. He has chosen a lovely bright red. You don't want a headache when you are knitting this one.

I have done the same as with J's. I have cast on 50 stitches and will just keep knitting in 2x2 rib until I have knitted the two balls. This has actually come up wider than J's scarf. As there is no wool content in this yarn, it doesn't pull back as much.

I am using cheap and cheerful Sirdar Bonus Chunky 100g, 100% acrylic. In this instance, he has less expensive taste than J.

I didn't really get much time for knitting yesterday, I did this while the boys were ice skating. I probably managed to knit half a ball.

So much to do and so little time. I must get the second quilt started.

Hi! The scarf looks so cosy! Must be the colour, red always makes me feel warm. Thanks for the comment too.
