The colors in this scarf made me crave hot chocolate the entire time I worked on it. The brown is just the right color for a really dark chocolate-y concoction and the tan reminded me of that light foam you get on top of a good mug of cocoa.

It was very hard to photograph. The brown and tan blends in with natural backgrounds so well that I took half a dozen photos and finally had to settle on this:

This second photo doesn’t show the scarf to its best advantage, but its shadow shows off the rows of diagonal holes nicely:

I broke down and put myself on the waiting list for Ravelry today. I must be crazy: I feel like I don’t have enough time to knit and spin what I have now; I hardly need a reason to crave more.  But it just looks like so much fun!

It will take a while: there are 10,884 people ahead of me. That means there is time for hot chocolate. Mmm… hot chocolate.
