Something About A Fall Project!

Between my dissertation readings I have started up a new knitting project with which I have been procrastinating my studies a bit over the weekend.
Elisabeth gave me this beautiful Peruvian alpaca wool for my birthday and I decided that instead of adding another sweater to my collection I wanted to do a really long simple scarf. I wanted to use the linen stitch as it makes the knitting look more like it is woven and really flat and fabric like. It is much less fluffy and really brings out the qualities and different color in the yarn. It will probably take me a long time to finish, as this technique is quite time consuming, but hopefully I will be done by the time it gets really cold.
