My long time friend James requested that I make him a scarf using some yarn he'd picked out. He wanted 8 inch wide by 3 foot long panels of the colors of the Ethiopian flag. It was quite a bit of fun to churn out rows of double crochet at lightening speed. It's always good to have a mindless project you can do while you're watching tv. Although at times it seemed this scarf would go on forever. And it kinda does... he's very tall and wanted it to be long and draping.
