Malabrigo Linen Scarf

I needed a short break from working with all blue, all the time.  I wanted to work on something with lots of color, so, yesterday I opened up the kit for the Malabrigo Linen Scarf that's been calling my name for weeks.  I did my preparations:  watched the video for the two-color cast on, printed out the list for the color progression, straightened out my circular needles and added the project into my Ravelry projects list.

I cast on the 300 stitches and worked 4 rows.  My hands are loving the softness of the yarn.

What a difference from the afghan I've been working on for the last while:
300 stitches vs 31 stitches
aran weight yarn vs fingering weight
size 11 US needles vs 1-1/2

Do I have a favorite project?  No.  I like them both and variety is keeping things interesting.  The afghan is now almost 90% complete, not counting the border.  So close.....
