Super Knitting ~

I bet that many of you were knitting during the Super Bowl, and I was too.  I made great progress on Mum's birthday scarf.  Found the perfect yarn last Sunday with my yarn yoga friends, and then tried several patterns with no luck. The yarn did not want to be lace or cables, it did not like herringbone or linen stitches.... so finally, after about 8 cast on and rip outs, I tried this pattern.
First I tried a size 6 needle, and it was too firm. It would have made a great hat or I went to a bigger size, and still the PSSOs were too tight.... so I ended up with a size 10 and the drape is perfect!  Hurrah!
