I was almost finished with a simple stockinette scarf for Lauren, but from about a foot or so in, it just didn't feel right. It was a little too wide and the stitch was boring. So I ripped it out tonight and dug out my new Stitchionary that I got for my birthday and found the perfect stitch.

It's a pretty simple mesh stitch with yarn overs and a few slipped stitches. The hardest part is keeping track of what row I'm on. The yarn is extremely bulky, so I'm using US17. I don't like the needles very much. They're aluminum and loud and make this awful noise when I purl. I'll definitely be getting some bamboo 17s soon.
