Beautiful for a cold and snowy Chicago day.

I can't wait to wear this to go to the movies on Friday night!

Thanks snow6982, I got it finished and love it.  Although it is huge, it is so warm and cuddly.

I'm very much thinking that I want to give this scarf a try but when I was looking at the price of the wool and size 50 needles it kinda daunted me.  I'm not sure I want to spend that much to just try something.  I'm a beginner and I'm teaching myself though I TVo the show every weekend to learn new things (I wish it was a longer program).  If anyone could give me an idea of a different fiber to work with but still look great I would be grateful! 

Thank You!

Erin8197: I have finished 2 of these, and love them! About your question on the K1 drop 2 stitches.... I got confused at first as well... when you knit the 1st stitch, remember you normally drop 1 anyway, then there are 2 more left to drop. So, essentially it seems like you are dropping 3 instead of 2.... It's supposed to make a really long stich. Hope that helps!  What I want to know is how to prevent it from shedding so much!!!!

I loved the look of this scarf and am in the middle of knitting.  However, I am not getting what to do with row 26 after I have k1 and wrapped the yarn around the needle 3X.  It asks that k1 and drop 2 stitches and repeat till the end.  So I k1, drop 2, then what do I do with the 3rd wrapped yarn?  Is this where I knit or is it slipped onto the right needle and I continue to k1 and drop 2.  Sorry, I am sure this is quite easier then what it seems.  I am a self taught knitter and sometimes get stuck on what could be really simple.  Thanks for any help anyone can give.

This one looks extremely cuddly, I'm getting motivated to dig out the needles & hooks and get back into the knitting/crochet world.
