FO: A scarf
I knit myself a scarf! That's a big deal since I don't think I've knit a scarf since I learned to knit as a child. The yarn is Rozetti Yarns Tundra, a self-ruffling acrylic yarn. The pattern is the riviera scarf from Universal Yarns, but I did not need to download the pattern because the owner of knitting shop where I purchased the yarn explained how to make the scarf, and it's just rows of 8 garter stitches.
It was actually time-consuming to knit this thing because with the self-ruffling yarn, you have to knit through the thin loops on the top of the tape. I normally knit English style, but I had to knit this continental style in order to pick the stitches through because throwing the entire strand just didn't work.
This scarf looks like a boa, more or less. I figure that by winding it twice around my neck, I can pretend to be a cool city girl.
