two scarves in one weekend

school is back in session. my classload was too heavy (17 units) so i dropped a class and now i'm down to 14 units, but i'll still end the semester a unit ahead. so it's all good.

between classes i managed to knit a few stitches here and there and i knit under the table in my ecology lab for a solid hour. sah-weet.

so thar she blows, ribbon scarf #4, the product of knitting during classes.

the photo's a little dark, sorry. i wore it to trader joe's and a random lady grabbed my scarf and said "it's so cool, i had to touch it" and then walked away. freakin' hippies. alright, i was hugely flattered.

on saturday i got some scrumptious chunky frog tree yarn. as soon as i got in the car i knit a swatch. and lo, a swatch was born.

i found the perfect pattern for the goods, "heart" from's special breast cancer awareness month issue. i cast on, and took off. i'd forgotten just how quick US 15's and chunky yarn went. i couldn't stop. i knit and knit and knit and then wham, a scarf was born. i'm in lust.

i heart "heart".

oh, and you better believe these scarves are mine, mine, all mine! MWAHAHA!

I was just cruising around looking for an interesting scarf pattern and came across your ribbon scarves. They look fantastic! I'd love to have a go at one, how can I get a pattern?
