I found this scarf a little while back in a LiveJournal community I'm in. Right away I though that it would require a blog of its own.
Cassie, a knitter from Georgia, took on the task of knitting the Super Mario Brothers level 1-1 into a scarf after her boyfriend, Jason, suggested she try her hand at "geek knitting".
She trucked along for a while, and then decided to take a break. Jason tempted her to finish it by saying he would propose to her once it's completed. That's a reward if I ever heard one!
Cassie has been making the pattern up as she goes along, and is knitting the entire scarf in Intarsia. All the little details, such as the question marks, the coins and the Goombas will be added in later. This seems like a great idea to me! Much less to fuss around with for the time being.
So far, the scarf is about 6 feet long, and she's about a third of the way there. This is a task of epic proportions. I can't wait to see how it turns out! And the ring she gets!
