Continuous loop/Infinity scarf/moebius cast on

So the big long continuous loop or infinity scarves are all the rage now. I have had customers bringing in pictures and people describing them to me. The easiest way to make them is to just knit a long scarf, give a twist and then stitch the two ends together. I decided however that this is the perfect time to learn how to do Cat Bhordi's moebius cast on. I have been wanting to teach myself for awhile so I grabbed her book A Treasury of Magical Knitting and sat down with it. I must say it was kind of fun to just blindly follow the book's description. I decided to try my hand at Fringed Cedar Bark Scarf. It is made out of Colinette Giotto which is soft to my neck. The technique and the scarf ranked an A+ in my book...quick , easy and classy.
