another misty garden

Hi, I'm happy to be a part of this knit along. I bought the Scarf Style book in order to knit the Backyard Leaves scarf after seeing so many beautiful finished ones here, but then ended up making the Misty Garden scarf first. I used 3 skeins of artyarns supermerino color #115 and size 7 needles. It's about 6 1/2 inches wide and about 50 inches long. This was the first time I knitted something and didn't have to keep track of row count or stitch count or anything. That was very nice. I memorized the pattern after about the first repeat, and then just knit to the end of my three skeins with very little thought. I know the Backyard Leaves scarf will be the opposite in that keeping track of my place in the pattern will take a lot of attention. I just bought the Wrap Style book and now I can't decide if I will do the Backyard leaves scarf next, or the Wandering Aran Fields capelet next. I'm leaning towards doing the capelet next.
