You can't go wrong with a scarf

As promised, here is a photo of the first knit of the year, the scarf-in-progress for the hubby:

I am holding two stands together. The gray is Plymouth Encore and the multi-color is Inca Marla, which is 100% alpaca laceweight. When I first started knitting (last January!), my hubby immediately requested a scarf. So we went to the LYS and I let him pick out any yarn he wanted. He picked the laceweight, and like a dummy I said sure... not really thinking about the fact that laceweights are best suited for lace! So it has sat in my stash for nearly a year. I finally came up with the brilliant idea of combining it with another yarn. Thus, this scarf was born.

The pattern is merely moss and stockinette panels that I saw in my book of knitting stitches and tweaked a little for a scarf. Size 10 needles, so I hope it will be done soon!

I like the two colors together. That is a great stitch pattern, too. Yeah, laceweight, alone--not seeing it on a man.

Looks cozy. I knitted a blanket in the basketweave pattern holding two stands together. It came out quite nicely however, it was my first knitted effort and I wish I had thought to use stitch markers. The project would've been much easier!
