It was a very low key weekend. Plenty of rain though. I finished the Grape Fiesta Scarf but I guess I'll have to steam it before it will stay flat. The scarf wants to fold in from the edges so it ends up looking about half as wide as it really is. I think it's a tension thing between the ribbed edges and the stockinette center. So when I get around to it I'll press it and see what happens.
I'm in sort of a use up the odds and ends kind of mood. I started this Zigzag scarf in order to use up two almost full skeins of Brown Sheep Nature Spun. I've made several of these scarves using a self-striping yarn. This time I'm alternating colors every two rows. It's a good take along project, if you don't mind chasing the yarn all over the place.
