I love when Z. takes a lengthy nap; my creativity and ability to craft is directly influenced by not only the length of said naps, but by the frequency of them. Fortunately, just before Christmas, she began napping regularly. This enabled me to get lots and lots of knitting done. This piece is my favorite and one I would have loved to keep for myself had I not been commissioned already to knit it! This is a great bulky scarf with nice subtle color changes and a tweedy feel. It was my first attempt at a Basket weave pattern - Just complicated enough to keep me interested but still so simple as to glance at the television every now and then.
