The Campus Scarf: Unveiled
My wonderful boyfriend was kind enough to pose for a picture this morning.



Don't mind his pose; he has a minor obsession with posing exactly the same as the guy in the book. If he would've been able to grow a goatee just for this picture, he would have.

Verdict on the ends: sticky-outy, but not coming undone. Thank you, Mr. Duplicate Stitch! (In the interest of being entirely honest about my knitting with you people, I have to admit that it took me until I was 2/3 through weaving in ends to realize what duplicate stitch actually did. It duplicates stitches. So instead of following the picture in the book I had - The Reader's Digest Knitter's Handbook - I should have, well, duplicated stitches. It looked much nicer and was easier and more fun once I figured that out.)

    It looks GREAT! That's cute that he wanted to pose like the guy in the book. :)

    Awesome scarf! I really like it, but it looks hard...I'm not quite sure what a duplicate stitch is (you give me a good reason to procrastinate and look it up!), but it sounds like it helps with weaving in ends. Very nice job! And what a guy with a sense of humor!!!
