Knitting for Others

I've started on my scarf for the Red Scarf Project 2007. I am a notoriously slow knitter, so I thought I'd better get started so I can be done by around the end of January.

It's a pretty simple basketweave pattern. Just 12 rows to the pattern and I've only cast on 24 stitches. So it will be narrow but long. I've already managed to make at least one mistake; I somehow added a stitch at some point (really wish I could figure out how I do that).

I'm using a beautiful new yarn from Bernat called Satin. It's super soft; this color is called Bordeaux (the color match on the Web site isn't great; the color I have looks much more like the Crimson).
