Here is the back view of the Leaflet scarf from Knitspot. I'm using Regia Silk sock yarn, very soft.
Here is to right side view. It's not mindless knitting because you really have to keep track of where you're at. I'm using the graph/chart.
This was going to be a plain beret but I decided to add a little bit of lace to break the monotony. The yarn is Patons Decor, a 70%/30% acrylic wool blend. Another blend I like knitting with is Lionbrand's Wool Ease.
