Knitting Notes

I actually cast on this Asherton Scarf a couple of weekends ago, but due to the heat wave, haven't worked on it very much until recently. I'm using some kettled dyed Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, which I initially feared would be a bit too rough, but now that I'm a ways into things, it feels like it'll do quite nicely. I'm getting a much more panelly look out of the pattern, which has something to do with the rows that are knit or purled almost the whole way across. They don't look that way in other pictures of seen, but I'm following the pattern, and that's what I'm getting. It's certainly not bad looking, so I've kept it up, but I'd really like to know what I'm doing wrong.

I'm doing this scarf for the Red Scarf Project. I'm getting to the point where I have more interest in trying new things than people to give the finished results to, and I decided some charity knitting was the next logical step. I am enjoying doing this scarf for someone that won't be expecting it, and will hopefully really appreciate receiving it.
