The Technicolor Dream Scarf

Once again, I cannot put down the variegated yarn!  I just can't step away from it.
Can you see why???!!  I used two different skeins of variegated yarn and this is the effect I got from it.   This is such an easy and fun stitch.  A k2, p2 changing yarn every two rows.  I used one skein each of Hobby Lobby's "I Love This Yarn" in Candy Corn Ombre, and Jazz Stripes. 
It makes a pretty striped scarf.  When Hubs saw it he said it was the Technicolor Dream Scarf.  I liked it!
I believe these will be Christmas presents for some of my favorite gals.
I have already begun another!  I also have another wrap to do and a little girl's scarf.  So things are quite busy.

Although I have been on vacation this week, it has been very busy!  My 30th class reunion was last night.  I had worked on it for the past nine months.  Stressed, planned, worried, anticipated...and it finally arrived.  Everyone had a great time.  I have mixed emotions...although I am glad it finally got here so I could quit stressing and worrying about it...I am also sad that it went by so quickly, there were so many people I wanted to catch up with and just didn't get the chance.
Here we are.  Class of 80.
I have to say a good looking group!!

Love these colours! I would wear that! I looked st the pattern you mentioned and she said to do a slip stitch start and finish to hide the yarn as you carry it up the side. I can't wait to try it)

Wow. Love this. And you thought of it yourself which makes it better. I'm heading for the yarn department tomorrow for two skeins of variegated yarn. Thanks for posting your scarf.

I just got back from Hobby Lobby. They say Candy Corn Ombre is not listed in their computer. I got the Jazz Stripes. Any suggestions for another yarn that will look this great?? Thanks for any suggestions.
