A few months ago, people in my knitting group were agog about a wool scarf (called the "Pidge") that was selling for an exorbitant amount of money.
It seemed an easy enough pattern to do, and I eventually found a version of it through Ravelry. It was around then that I learned my friend Virginia had been mobilized, and I decided to make her this scarf. It is a fairly easy pattern, and it wouldn't have taken me so long to make if it hadn't been for some arthritis in my hands, and the chaos that is the Christmas season.
I cropped my face out to emphasize the scarf (and because my face looked goofy).
