This is the very popular Clapotis pattern from knitty.com. I did it in a green wool with flecks of yellow in it, so it's not as soft and it doesn't curl up as nicely as the sample one in the pattern. However, it's interesting and super-warm. The cool thing is that I worked on it all though the new resident orientation weeks at the end of June, and it certainly helped me to stand out as a different kind of resident. (As if I needed more help to stand out.)
Anyhow, it's known at our house as the "residency scarf" and actually prompted the development of some friends, as well as helping to keep me awake.
Yet another example of how knitting can make you smarter AND give you more friends.
