Pattern: Heart Scarf by Stephannie C. Roy
[it's the fourth pattern in a knitty special for breast cancer awareness; all the patterns come in one .pdf, so you have to scroll down a bit.]
Yarn: Cygnet Seriously Chunky, four balls from baa ram ewe (my lovely LYS)
Needles: 9mm straights, plus a darning needle for the grafting
Generally, I love it. It's so chunky and snuggly. I can pull it over half my face while walking through the harsh Scottish winds. I love the colour, which is much less `striking' against my purple coat than the one I had been wearing. There are matching gloves in my head, and maybe a matching hat, but who knows if these will get done before the weather gets warm!! I haven't blocked it and am umm-ing and aah-ing about whether I should, because I like that it's dense, but equally you can't really see the pattern when I'm actually wearing it.
Oh, and I messed up the grafting. This is the first time I had done it, so I had the brilliant knittinghelp.com video on while I was doing it. This did mean that I failed to watch what I was doing, and in my tiredness and confusion failed to remember which way was knitwise and which was purlwise. Note to self: do not try to graft at 11pm at night. But this comes into the category of things that are `errors only I will ever notice'.
Well, and now you.
