Today it was 80 degrees. I knitted a scarf.

ETA: Wha? I scheduled this to post last weekend.  It was not 80 degrees yesterday, but the universe decided to kick my in the behind today, and I am sad, and I can't be bothered to change it. 

My mom bought this yarn at Jo-Ann a month or so back.  For being a cheap inexpensive acrylic, this yarn has a beautiful color (way more so than you can tell in my crappy photos), it's super bulky and super soft. 

I only had one skein, and after trying a cable pattern that I found on Ravelry that seemed so simple but was either flawed or flew right past my comprehension (guess which one I'm betting on?), I let it sit around because I wasn't sure what to do.  Since I was taking a long car trip last week, and wanted to finish the scarf in time to toss it in an Easter basket (don't worry, I see the jerkiness of gifting someone something they technically bought, there's more stuff in the basket) I had to come up with something. 

So, in lieu of following an actual pattern, I used one stitch the whole way through. 

Pattern: Seed stitch
Size: About 3 feet
Needles: 13
Will you turn it over so we can see the weaving in of the ends?: Not a chance
