Greek or Knit talk???

Found this scarf pattern (included on the yarn package) . What a gorgeous scarf. Going to try it, to get the hang of knitting, so that it will feel more comfortable switching back and forth between knit and purl. Actually, did pretty good using the double pointed needles. Can't show you what I did on Nancy's needles.... she pulled it all out. :(

Bought some lucisous yarn at the Yarntopia shop in Katy TX. I think it will make a beautiful scarf for my daughters birthday coming up in April.
