Curly Wurly

Or 'ribbon scarf' as they have it in Handknit Holidays. The color is actually a deep red with the red lurex accent, the same colors as in the pattern. Because I'm that inventive.

Mine is 75% the original's length and works better as a ruffly, romantic cravat kinda thing than a regular scarf. It'll be great for those open necked winter coats. Of course, it's in the 60's now. As they say, winter comes every year. (Reminds me, I need to do our taxes!)

I've now got almost 2 balls of the Classis Elite 'Lush' yarn and quite a bit of Rowan's 'Lurex'. So maybe a hat? Would it be too darned much? Maybe all together with a pirate jacket? Huh?
