I really enjoyed knitting this pattern, and I found it to be the perfect mix of mindful/mindless knitting. Making the fringe as I knit wasn't nearly as fussy as I thought it would be, and the mesh design was fairly easy to memorize. I do wish there had been a chart in addition to the written instructions, but I also feel that beggars can't be choosers when it comes to a free pattern.
I do wish I had added a garter stitch border opposite the mesh, as the fabric curls quite a bit, even after a good blocking. That's mostly on me, since I knew the second I read the pattern that curling would be an issue, yet I chose to proceed as written!
That said, the curling doesn't really affect the scarf when I'm wearing it, as I like to wrap it around a bunch and then use the button to secure it in place. I was pretty excited to find the perfect vintage button in my stash, too - it's perfect for the colorway!
The yarn is incredibly soft and silky, a real delight to wear close to the skin. If you ever have a chance to grab yourself a skein of Skein, this particular base is worth a try. It can be a little tough to track down stateside; I was fortunate to snap up a few skeins from Doodlebug Yarn before they closed.
In other news, I had a really cute visitor on my back porch the other day - this little baby squirrel was making quite a racket trying to get someone's attention! He seemed a bit dazed after falling from a satellite dish that was on the second story of my house, so I kept a close eye on him until he snapped out of it and wandered back to his momma (at least, I hope that's what happened!). Apparently squirrels are quite durable critters!
