Some people have resolutions

I have a scarf.



I finished knitting it last night, so I figure this is officially The Scarf of 2011.

Pretty--it looks almost woven.

Thanks!

Yeah, it does look kind of woven! I used seed stitch, which alternates the two basic knitting stitches (knit and purl) to produce an even bumpiness. It's not my favorite -- I'd prefer a plain knit stockinette, like in socks. But while stockinette looks pretty, it's different on the back and it curls up into a tube, so not so great for a scarf.

A scarf seems more practical than resolutions.

Indeed. In February, it will still keep my neck warm, while resolutions rarely last so long.
