Now that the holiday gifts are given I can post about the knitting. It's tough to keep a secret in blogland. It must have looked like I had abandoned knitdom, but truth be told, most everything knit was a gift. This one was for my niece, a college freshman. All dorm kids need the huggy comfort of a soft scarf. Especially those way up in the Northeast.
Pattern: Wavy, by Sarah Smith, available free on Knitty
Yarn: Heirloom Alpaca 8-ply
Needles: Who knows? I've got to start writing down the needle size prior to putting them back in the needle holder. My best guess is a US 6.
Thoughts: Great pattern, I give it my highest compliment: I would knit it again. It needed the growth from blocking, but I also liked the more bunched up unblocked version.
