Knit: Spider Scarf - Amazing

I promise, not all the content will be about knitting. But I do knit, and dye yarn, so it's natural that I'd get started with some posts that have many interests colliding. Really, whether or not you knit, you need to see this scarf:

I'm telling you: I don't even like spiders. And this is in my queue. I think it's brilliant.

In case you're wondering: you start knitting with several strands of laceweight yarn, on smaller needles. Then, as you go, you a) drop a strand of yarn, and b) go up a needle size, until you're working on the largest needles with a single strand.

I've got this on the needles right now! It takes a while to get the hang of some of the funky stitches, but I'm loving it.

It's a small, small world - Sharon (idyllicchick) is a dear friend and altogether lovely person. I also hate spiders but want to make this so badly!
