First Fo of the Year!

Hooray, a red scarf!

whew
Scarf and beach towels, a study

Pattern: Irish Hiking Scarf
Yarn: Elann Peruvian Pure Alpaca, in Oxblood
Needles: Knitpicks Options, 5.0mm (US8)

Began December 30, 2006
Finished and blocked January 23,2007

What a fun scarf, and what soft yarn! I have heard that it's sheddy, but I enjoyed working with it, and with three dogs, who notices a little alpaca floating around? After this knit, I can cable anything without a cable needle!

Great scarf! I think it's pretty funny sitting there with the beach towels :)

It looks beautiful! Too bad you weren't finished with it in time for your snow. But I'm sure it's still way too cold to be using those beach towels.

Oh, it's gorgeous! I love the color and the cable pattern. You knit it without a cable needle? I've never been that brave.
