New design? yes! :D

Alright. So, toward the middle of this month, I was going to be participating in a Traveling Scarf Swap in a group I am moderating on Ravelry. Unfortunately, school has taken a priority in most areas of my life, including money. So, I had to drop out. But, not before I had already started my section of scarf.
Now, I had started thinking about this scarf for a while and I had been looking at patterns forever! I didn't know what to do. I also had finally picked out this yarn in my stash that I thought I didn't really like and wanted to get rid of. Well, low and behold, I started knitting with this cheap wool that I'd had for ages and put in new stitches as I went along and VOILA! I had created a new stitch in a wonderful looking yarn. I was instantly in love.

Currently, I am making 2 scarves that I will hopefully sell in my Etsy shop once I get it going. I've got the wool version and one that I've started in Caron Simply Soft. I think I'll make a few in different colorways to sell. I really am in love with this pattern. I don't know if I want to put in on Ravelry as a stitch pattern or a scarf pattern.....idk.
