Inauguration Scarp Wrap

Hi Everyone! I'm Rachel, and I'm working on an Inauguration Day Wrap instead of a scarf. When I saw the beginnings of some Inauguration Day Scarves, I decided that a scarf with a fringe on the side was not really for me, and I was really unexcited about the idea of weaving in 732 ends. I like the idea of a fringe on a wrap, though, so I decided to make one of those instead. I cast on 2 stitches at the beginning and I had planned to increase one stitch every third day, but it isn't getting bigger as quickly as I had sort of imagined, so I'm going to start increasing every other row on day 24. On July 22, I'll start decreasing! Then I'll really know when the year is halfway over.

Love the idea of knitting and politics/ current events. The whole setup in the blog header of the flag in the knitting needles is so unique :)
