The humble beginnings of the Campus Scarf

The shipping box makes a very nice yarn holder, in addition to being full of tasty packing tape (according to the kitties).

It's knitting up very quickly (in fact, I've added two inches since I took the picture). But the more I look at it, the more I realize it doesn't do what it's trying to do. It's described as kind of fake plaid - the combination of the stripes and texture is supposed to do it. But it doesn't work that way. It looks like stripes on texture... and that's it. It's still nice, aside from the unsightly ridge that pops up when switching between sections of texture. And, good lord, I'm gonna have a billion ends to weave in. There's only one spot on each chunk where the main color doesn't have to be cut, and weaving in ends is going to be a bitch on the little stripes of color (two fat ends, two rows worth of color). But I shall persevere!
