Linen Stitch

I know it's been a while since St. Patrick's Day, but I wanted to show you my St. Pady's Day scarf.  I found a stitch on Pintrest for a linen stitch.  I used some leftover worsted weight acrylic from my St. Patrick's Day banner.  I made this scarf just for our knitty party so that I would have something green to wear.  But I like the linen stitch.  I made the scarf side-ways.  I used a size 10.5 circular needle (36 inches long).  I cast on 210 stitches and then followed the pattern.
It's an interesting texture.  I think if you used two colors it would look like a checkerboard.  It would be beautiful in a varigated yarn too.

Of course, our knitty luncheon on St. Paddy's day was too much fun.  We ate too much (well I did).  Talked too much (well I did).  And even managed to squeeze in a bit of knit and crochet!  My BFF and her daughter went all out on the decorations.  My quote is that it looked like a leprechaun threw up.  Here's a pic or two of the bathroom...that's just the bathroom.  Can you imagine the dining room?  Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of that.
