Clara called yesterday to say that Saratoga Springs was a winter wonderland -- the snow was piling up and didn't look like it was going to stop any time soon. So she needs her scarf! I finished it a couple of days ago, and will be sending it off tomorrow along with some Valentine treats.
While it is not a spectacular scarf, it is much more attractive in real life than in this photo. I used a chunky baby alpaca (Misti Alpaca, I think it was) and knit it in a simple seed stitch, using both colors at once on size 17 needles. Hey, it's what she wanted. And while it may not be so delicious to look at in this picture, it is sheer delight to have wrapped around your neck.
So now I can get back to the socks and the tax stuff, which I have been avoiding.
Enjoy your Sunday.
