Scarf Progress..

Well, after my third yarn purchase and pattern selection, I finally found something that I think my scarf pal will love. Well, I hope he/she does anyway! I present:

Irish Hiking Scarf, in a Camel coloured Alpaca

I grabbed five balls of the Classic Alpaca in a lovely camel colour for my Scarf Pal, and while I’m about two balls done, I doubt I will be using all of them, primarily because though my pal wanted a long scarf, he/she lives in a fairly warm climate and won’t need anything to bundle up in. With the two balls done, I think it's at just over 2.75 feet,

To me the Irish Hiking Scarf is absolutely beautiful in the alpaca, and I very well may make one for myself! When I first saw the pattern I couldn't help but picture it in a nice, very yummy yarn, and I think this one works great!

That looks so dreamy! What a lucky scarf pal! I've always wanted to knit this pattern myself, too. Although, first...I have to learn how to do cables. Hehe. I have some superfine alpaca in also a darker camel-like color. I feel like I have to make one now. (On another website, we call it being a 'lemming'). :)
