Striped Infinity Scarf

I am making a rather boring simple cardigan sweater for myself in black yarn (a cotton/acrylic blend from my Mom's stash called Sierra Pacific Lil' Grins).  But... Oh My!!!! BooorrRRRiiinnnggg to knit!   I should have added some lace or cables... something, anything to make it more interesting to knit! The sweater will be great (I hope!) when it's all done but I took a bit of a break from the boring black thing to knit a colorful scarf.  The pattern is called Striped Infinity Scarf (pattern link is HERE).  I used my yarn called "Zauberball" in the colorway called "Durch die Blumen" (translates to "through the flowers"). When I saw the yarn, I thought... "Watermelon!"

I was worried I did not like this scarf. I actually tried to give it away to my local yarn shop owner but she declined, stating she makes scarves but does not wear them because she gets too warm.  Despite my disappointment with the way my scarf turned out (I couldn't figure out HOW to wear it!), I asked my son to take some photos of me in my scarf to post on Ravely. When I tripled the scarf around my neck, I loved it!

Wrapped around my neck three times.  Love, Love, LOVE it!

This pattern is on a very nice website called
