Okay, aside from this yarn not telling me what it was until *after* it was knitted, this was pretty straightforward. I didn't like the yarn knitted together (my original scarf idea), so I knitted blocks. But I found that I had less yarn than I thought, and only got 5 blocks in two colors. Not even superior powers of geometry could let me make that into a symmetrical arrangement that I liked (I'm big on symmetry. Someday I'll tell you about frogging a zillion rows of cable because it didn't mirror the one on the other side...) Anyway, as it turned out, sewing all the blocks together in one long strip? Makes a scarf.
Yes, Woats was surprised, too.
And thanks to carrying it around during all the sewing-together and keenly observing reactions to it? I even know who I was making it for. I love it when a plan comes together! (This wasn't it, but I do love it when it happens!)
