Daddy, how was I born?
A little boy goes to his father and asks ‘Daddy, how was I born ?’
The father answers, ‘Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, and googled each other. There your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button , nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that said:

Mesh bamboo scarf knitting pattern
A lightweight, incredibly soft scarf perfect for a cool evening. Knit with 100% bamboo in a simple mesh pattern. Appropriate for beginners and more advanced knitters looking for a simple project that doesn’t require too much concentration.
This scarf is approximately 3″ wide and 60″ long.
K1: knit one stitch
K2TOG: knit two stitches together
YO: yarn over
Southwest Trading Company 100% Bamboo (one ball)
Straight needles size US 10
Note: Your scarf-in-progress will look different than mine because it needs to be lightly blocked when finished to flatten it and open up the pattern. I block mine by dampening it with water and laying it flat on a towel on a table.
To knit the scarf:
Cast on 23 stitches
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: Knit
Row 3: K1 *K1, YO, K2TOG*; repeat from *, end the row with K1
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until scarf reaches desired length, ending with row 3.
Knit two more rows and then bind off.
Lightly block the scarf to flatten it and accentuate the pattern.
