Starting another scarf before finishing two that are already on the needles is probably not prudent. But this scarf spoke to me, with its ruching between rows of garter. Even the back side of the scarf has an interesting texture.
Using fingering weight yarn and with a few minor changes to the pattern, the scarf is taking shape rather nicely. I am totally enjoying the knit. If it turns out the way I hope it will, I've got lots of sock yarn backed up in the stash to make another. And another. And another.
Seems like a good way to use some of that sock yarn that is way too beautiful to tread on.
