something new

l'anniversaire, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

why yes, it does look like it's smiling at you, doesn't it?

For our one year anniversary, which (especially gauged in knitting time) is coming up quickly, I decided to make the bf a new scarf. If you recognize the stitch pattern that's because it is the same one used in the recently completed barcelona socks, with a seed-stitch border.

Pattern: adapted from Barcelona socks (rav link)
Needles: US 5 (3.75 mm)
Yarn: Woolarina's Lux Sock 2 skeins (knitting 2 rows from one skien, 2 rows from the other to blend the colours a bit).

2 skeins of lux sock is quite a bit of yardage (500 to be exact) so I'm pretty sure I'll have lots of yarn left over. And yes, I already have plans. *Cue evil laughter*

The scarf is looking good. What are your plans for the left over yarn?
