Spiral Scarf

I have just finished the Spiral Scarf. This is my third project from Knitting Nature (but it's the second to be finished!)

The scarf is composed of 15 hexagons that make a spiral shape. I ran out of time, and made 12, but I don't think the last three tiny hexagons wuld make much of a difference. I changed from 1x1 ribbing to stockinette, because the yarn didn't look good in rib stitch. This modification was a BIG mistake, as the stockinette stitc make the edges curl, and I believe ribbing wouldn't curl like that. I have wetblocked it for 36 hours, but it's not entirely flat. Lovely as it is, I don't think this yarn was the best choice for the pattern. A lighter, more drapy yarn would have been better. It was a really, really quick knit. I had some minor surgery done on my arm that caused knitting discomfort, and then I lost a day to migraines, but I still managed to finish it in five days.

I like the bit of curling, especially with the red... a very autumn leaf sort of look. Enjoy your beautiful new scarf!

'Let your legs be gracefully disposed, one hand on the knee, free porno foto theother--'Abner came to an unhappy pause.In order to be in a position smallbreast successfully to change the outer worldthrough the motility, there is required the accumulation of a large sumof experiences in the memory systems as well as a manifold fixation ofthe relations which are evoked in this memory material by differentend-presentations.There was something exquisitely refreshing in the great glasses geile glocken offoaming soda that a spruce young man was drawing from a marblefountain, above which half a dozen polar bears in an ambitious printwere disporting themselves.But we have not come one step nearer a solutionof the riddle: Why can the unconscious furnish aphrodite live the motive power for thewish-fulfillment only during sleep? The answer to this question mustthrow light on the psychic nature of wishes; and it will be given withthe aid of the diagram of the psychic apparatus.

Have you thought of stabilizing the edge with crochet? I've seen stockinette edged with single crochet, with 5 sc worked in each 90 degree corner. Maybe this would help flatten your scarf.
