How very wintery

I know that as a fairly new knitter I should have done oodles of scarves by now, but this is actually only my third scarf ever (I sort of skipped the whole scarf phase and jumped directly into sweaters) - and it's also my very first time working with more than one color (other than stripes) because I tend to lean more towards aran than fair isle.

But anyway. Ta da! It's very wintery.

It curls on the edges and I'm hoping that will soften up once I toss it in the washer, and by the way, I do not recommend ironing acrylic yarn (in an attempt to uncurl the sides) on anything but very low heat because one end is now slightly more crunchy than it probably should be.

I have no idea what the heck I"m going to do with it, since the Sacramento area is not exactly known for its scarf-requiring weather. Hmm. My little sister and her family live in Seattle. Maybe they'll get a pretty, new (ever so slightly crunchy) scarf tucked into their luggage when they come down for Thanksgiving...
