I've probably knit easily one hundred of scarves. Out of all those scarves I have never knit one for myself but our weather doesn't tend to lend itself much to scarves.
After I knit Marlene's red one I fell in love with the color and decided that I needed one in red also. I had to decide on what kind of yarn but there was no hesitation in my yarn choice, Malabrigo in Ravelry Red. The color in the finished photo is not correct but the picture of it on my table is very close to the color. What a pleasure to have around my neck. I might even make myself another scarf someday.
