The Tube Sock Scarf (First Draft)

I lost my original scarf in a trip to San Francisco earlier this year, and who truly knows when I'll get it back. It was dated anyway, being almost three years old. My original concept for a scarf was a garter stitched striped scarf in bright pink and black with tassels. I now have created a scarf that resembles a tube sock. This is the first "draft" of it. I have since modified it. I'm knitting myself one now in the official selected format. Unfortunately, I started in acrylic and ran out, and switched to wool. The gage is pretty much the same and you can't really tell, but I can. I don't think it'll bother me much since it's mine and not a gift. Mine will be black with white stripes.

Progress on my first time double needle knitted project, a teddy bear! At first I had no idea what I was going to end up doing with this guy, but then I remembered my friends Matt and Heather are having a baby! So I'm going to send it their way when he's done for little baby Liam. Shhhh! Don't tell them!
