Tinkling the ivories

The December Magknits is up, and in it you'll find a picture of my dad, my sister-in-law, and oh yeah, this scarf (grin).

It's an idea I had brewing around in my head ever since I first learned to do illusion knitting last year (and made that Linux penquin scarf for Richard) - the colors just naturally brought to mind a piano keyboard, and this year I finally got around to sitting down and charting it out. Ah, if only all the rest of the pattern ideas rattling around in that wacky brain of mine were so straightforward to design!

Special thanks, by the way, to Jeremy, who identified the brown striped mystery socks in yesterday's Circle of Socks as Opal Rainforest Owl.

Oooh, I'd love to see a pattern for the Linux Scarf!

Congrats on being published!

That scarf is so cool! I saw it today and didn't really glance at the author, just spent time checking out the fabulous illusion knitting. Finally, I get down to the bottom and saw your blog name, and thought "hey! I know her!!" :)

It's a very cool scarf -- and the best pattern in this entire issue! Well done!!

That is a great scarf. You've inspired me to do a Mickey Mouse but I have no clue how. Is there a piece of software or something to help figure it out?

I LOVE that scarf! I work in a Performing Arts dept., and I'll be making as many as I can for our pianists! Thank you!

Oh, that is really perfect! I wonder if I have time to knit it for my dad for Christmas? He's not much for scarf wearing, but he's mad for piano things.
