I finished my double knit scarf, and I am very happy with it. I was thinking I was going to give it to someone for a Christmas present, but I put it on over my coat to check the length, that that was it. I fell in love with it, and decided it was not going to go anywhere.
The end (on the right) is finished with the kitchener stitch. It is supposed to mimic stockinette stitch by sewing. Mine did not turn out quite right, it looks like garter stitch, but I think I know what I did wrong. No one will notice, though, from farther than 3 feet away.
I don't have enough yarn left over to make the bubble scarf, but I did find something nice to do with it... stay tuned!
