Streussel

 In my ongoing quest to use up my stash...and in my current mood, where I don't want to start big projects just now...I decided to knit a quick scarf.
 
I've knit a Streussel before, but I gifted that one away.  I absolutely love this shape for scarves.  The extra fabric in the middle makes it really cozy to wear.
 
My one complaint is that the yarn - which was beautiful in the skein - is rather hideous when knit up.  I kind of hope it fades.  A lot.  Sigh.  It was unfortunately one of the most colorfast hand-dyed skeins of yarn I've ever washed....
 
As a funny note...I did rather start it on a whim, only to discover a little while later that I'd started it on the designer's birthday!
