Winter Scarf Swap


I participated in a swap over at Swap-bot. This swap sure was fun. The object was to send a "scarf kit" to someone. The kit needed to include a pattern, the yarn and needles to complete it, a cup and hot beverage.
Beth did a fabulous job for me. She sent the pattern for the Irish Hiking scarf. Funny thing is, I had this pattern bookmarked and kept thinking it looked like a fun pattern to knit up. Beth also sent some wonderful red merino wool. Red is my favorite color, but you know, I have never used it to knit with. So needless to say, I can't wait to begin this project. The only thing holding me back....the 80 degree weather we are having!
Thanks Beth!

My poor friend, to suffer through all that nasty heat and humidity. Maybe if you turn on the air conditioner, the knitting will go easier? :D

Love the yarn. Gorgeous. Can't wait to see your beautiful new scarf. It sounds like a fun swap.
