Writer's Strike Fancy Scarf

Joss Whedon, wunderkind creator of Buffy, Firefly, and stuff, has some great observations about some of the media coverage and public opinion surrounding the ongoing WGA strike. It's rousing, eloquent stuff. Joss has always been surprisingly good at political waxing.

After the article, the disparaging image of a writer as layabouts in emo glasses and boho scarves stuck with me, so I decided to make a scarf in honor of the strikers. Initially I thought I would try to send it to Joss, but since he will probably get scarves by the bucket load after this, I'm just going to give it to my sister-in-law for Christmas ;)

This is what the mistake rib looks like close up.
