I'm useless at fibbing, I'm usually laughing before I can get three words out in a lie, but I managed to pull off a bit of a whopper with a friend. She adores purple. I kind of dislike it intensely. Purple lies in the realm of my distaste for pink. However, she's in a bit of difficult period in her life, so I sucked it up and created this scarf for her. She stays over once in a while for work reasons, so I had to think of how to cover my tracks on this project. I actually managed to fib about it being a "border for a baby blanket" which it totally could be, but it wasn't. She bought the fib.

Section one was done side to side, alternating honeycomb stitch with garter stitch.
Section two was three kinds: garter, honeycomb, and seed stitch.

I cannot tell you how pleased I was knitting on this textured scarf. Even though it's purple.
