  • What colors do you like/dislike?

I like blues, greens, purples. Jewel tones. Colors that make me go ick are oranges and yellows.

  • What level of knitter are you (beginner, intermediate, advanced)?

  • Where do you knit? Will you make this scarf while doing something else (such as watching TV, passenger in car, etc.)
Most likely I will knit the scarf in front of the TV or at appointments, maybe a little of it at red lights, they last 2-4 minutes here.

My favorite scarf is 1/4 of a yard wide, it covers my head as well as my neck.

  • Would you like a traditional scarf pattern or would you prefer something else such as a gaiter, cowl, gaiter, or capelet type of arrangement? If you would like a traditional rectangular pattern--do you like short scarves that you tuck in your coat or a long one that you can wrap and wrap around
I cowl pattern would be cool.

Nope, I do not crochet.
