Endless scarves...

So I finished scarves for two very special guys a month or so ago.. took pictures of them.. finally sent them out a few days ago. Yes, I'm very bad at getting things done sometimes. But here they are...

Generic 1 x 1 Rib Scarf
Joseph Galler Inca Cotton Yarn, c
olor Oz
1 skein?

Though it's simple, I LOVE this scarf. The cotton is so so soft. Quick to knit. Squishy. Not too hot. Organic. And how cool is it that the yarn is that perfect color green.. without dye?! I definitely need to make another - it just seems so rustically luxurious. (Is that possible?)

The next scarf is for an amazing friend who doesn't seem to care if I send him his birthday presents 6 months late. I wanted something simple, green, and wearable, that would accentuate his tallness and shield him from the cold Chicago winds. And tweedishness is always good.

Berroco Ultra Alpaca, color 6277
3 skeins

The picture does it no justice. The color reminds me of dark moss on stone.. carved stone thanks to the cables. But it was a long, tedious knit. And the yarn, while passably soft, could be more so. Overall I'm happy with it, and hope its recipient is too!

Next up are 2 Almost-Famous Luggy Bonnets (from Melanie Falick's Weekend Knitting) for my nieces. Then a sweater or two! (For me!)
