The first one is an awesome pattern I found on line, and I felt the pattern works great with the yarn I chose which is Lion Brand - Barley. The yarn is a mix of acrylic and nylon so it's got some stretch and bounce to it. The pattern is a simple ribbing two rows, knit two rows alternating until the desired length. I did a purl cast on with a purl side cast off of 34 stitches. Super easy!
This scarf is made with a plain taupe, soft, acrylic yarn. This scarf developed from a swatch of a new stitch I wanted to learn. The stitch is sometimes called picot, or double moss stitch. The stitch is created by knitting two, purling two, then on the next row doing the opposite, and the third row then created to match the first row. I made it super long so that I could wrap it and tie it anyway I wanted.

I needed a break from the lines and crowds, so today I headed to Luxembourg Gardens, then the Museum of Natural History. Amazing! I've been at the museum for hours and still haven't seen everything. I walked here from a Metro stop passing through several charming neighborhoods. It's cold and rainy today, but I can't think of any where else I would rather be.
