On the Needles: Endless Loop Scarf

I love to knit.  I find the rhythm of it relaxing.  Sometimes it’s something that I can do without a thought and other times it takes some serious concentration depending on which project I’m working on.  But usually in the end I have something useful, pretty or both.  On the Needles will be a post series showing off what I'm working on now.

Little bit of detail
This is a project that I’ve been working on for a little while now.  I started this scarf back in December right before Christmas.  I kinda thought I might fly through it and have it done as a last minute gift, but as you can see that didn’t happen.  Though not because it’s a big or complicated pattern.  It’s a project that I can pick up, do a few rows and put down again after 5 minutes or so.  Which, with my often very busy days, is exactly what I need.

The waste yarn provisional cast-on
This is actually a fairly simple pattern only requiring some basic knitting techniques- knit stitch (k), yarn over (yo), knit 2 together (k2t), the provisional cast-on and the 3 needle bind-off.  There are tons of youtube videos out there demonstrating these stitches and techniques.  If you’ve ever knit before you could probably pick this project up pretty easily.
