This is a scarf knitted from a pattern in Nicky Epstein's book "Over the Edge."
It was knitting on a size 7 needle with yarn handspun and dyed by my mom.
Knitting the circles and the tubes was a new technique for me and took lots of time. Before I started the scarf, I thought of only having 5 instead of 7 circles on each end, since the idea of making 14 of these circles seemed rather intimidating.
This scarf will be a gift for a dear friend (a red-head and very sophisticated) who came to my rescue (and my children's) during a tough time this summer.
