Simple Pleasures

handspun scarf
Having finished my first pair of complicated Norwegian socks, I made a very simple 2x2 ribbing scarf this weekend. This is the first time I've knitted up some of my own handspun and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I was planning on using a fancy ribbing or slip stitch pattern to show off the yarn but when I swatched I found that it looked best in a simple ribbing. Complicated knitting is wonderful but sometimes simple is best.

Can you tell I'm happy with the result?
