The Most Perfect Scarf

I've knit and crocheted hundreds and hundreds of items in the past. I would say that the BEST thing I have created is Carla's Birthday scarf. I used my trusted "Rhoda Scarf" pattern, alternating every two rows with two different colorways of Koigu Yarn, one in orange variegated and one in burnt sienna, solid; size "G" hook. I created a border using a pattern from a Leisure Arts pamphlet in the solid color.
After this piece was blocked, I truly fell in love with it. I must make another one for myself! Again, happy birthday, Carla!

The scarf IS lovely, Ellen. I'm sure Carla will enjoy wearing it, once this heat wave is over!
