Dale convinced me that I should have a hand knit thank you gift for the Chief of Naval Operations when he does my retirement. And he told me it should be a scarf. And it had to be in navy blue and gold colors for the Navy. And it needed to be cool looking. He is convinced that the CNO will never have had anything knit for him by an admiral before. He is probably right. So, I agreed. Then I spent several days searching for a reversible pattern stitch that worked with two colors. I decided to do slip stitch diagonal stripes. And I found the yarn at a fantastic little shop in the northern part of Lancaster County. Since then I’ve been busy on it, but it still has about 40% to go. I should come in under the deadline without too much fuss. And I like it well enough that I may modify it and knit another for Dale and to work for a pattern to publish. I’ll put up a photo of the back side when I think of it. It is not identical, but is very nice so although the scarf is not truly reversible, it works.
