For several years, over several different e-mail addresses, people have asked me to connect with them through Linked-in. I almost never refused, and consequently, became linked with numerous people through several different e-mail addresses.
It never made much sense.
I'm hoping to get all that straightened out in the next few months.

The finished scarf has the thickness of a ribbed scarf. Of the two contrasting (or coordinated) colors, each color has a dominating side. The end fringes are one color or the other, not mixed.
The first scarf I made was red and KU blue. I was so pleased with it I made a second scarf with black and grey, an intended present for my attorney. It's subtle, elegant, and not attention-grabbing (well, maybe it is in a discreet sort of way). I hope he will wear it. (I intend to monitor his wardrobe when winter comes.)
Use two skeins of about 175 yards each, an appropriate weight for size 8-9 circular needles.
Color A: Cast on (not long-tail) 225-250 stitches, leave 12 inches at beginning for fringe. Knit one row.
Color B: Switch to other end of circular needle. Leave 12 inches for fringe. Knit two rows.
Color A: Switch to other end of circular needle. Leave 24 inches for fringe, Knit two rows.
Color B: Switch to other end of circular needle. Leave 24 inches for fringe. Knit two rows.
Repeat, alternating colors until desirable width is reached. With Color A, knit one row. Bind off. Leave 12 inches for fringe. Cut loops, tie fringe pieces snuggly together. If work has become loose, tighten up fringe lengths before tying together. Trim length as desired.
