A couple of years ago my mother in law requested a knitted scarf in Montreal Canadiens colours. It finally got to the top of my list this fall, and I finished about a month ago. I followed the pattern Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks (Ravelry membership required). It would have gone very quickly had I not been in the middle of moving at the time. I am happy with the results, although I would like to find a way to transition between colours a little bit more smoothly.
