I decided to send something that felt fabulous, and wait on the interesting pattern scarf. This is what I sent:
Peruvian Tweed 100% alpaca. (660yds @$27....quite the value)
cast on 90 stitches, k10, p10, follow pattern as presented until you run out of yarn.
It creates this wonderful accordion like fabric that spreads out horizontally to a hood or shoulder shawl, or hanging vertically, collapses down to a scarf. It's soft, wonderful, and I already had it made.
Thanks to all that sent patterns. I look forward to trying them.
Maybe with my hat a day knitting plan, I should do a scarf a week....just as soon as I finish the sweater repairs on my desk and finish the sweaters for Mom and Dad.
