Yes, it is a basketweave ("magic") scarf. With edges. It's a bit longer than this now, and lives on different needles. Here is the problem - I'm sick of it. It takes for-ev-er. And there's a goof up - you can't see it in this picture, but I assure you, it is in the future of this picture. Current past. Hope that makes sense. But it's worsted yarn on size 8 needles and it's driving me crazy. So I started making a scarf my mom asked for a bazillion years ago, and now that I'm faster at knitting (in general) it won't take a bazillion years to make. I'm calling it a Muppet Pelt scarf because, well, that's what the girls at youknitwhat would call it. I'm willing to accept the fact that I'm knitting the pelt of a Muppet.
D is for Dead Muppet!
Anyway, the point of this is that basketweave is officially moving from the front burner to the back burner or possibly the warm oven for the time being. The mother-in-law's birthday is in March. Do people still like scarves in March?
Looook, I was gonna be lazy and then wasn't. Are you proud? This is the basketweave scarf today. Obviously in need of a good blocking.
