Homespun Scarf
Another scarf done (after the holidays I plan to do bigger stuff) for a present. This was dead easy, knit in garter stitch in Lion Brand homespun and took an evening. More detail info in my blog. I love the color, but not sure if it's right for the recipient, I am currently doing another in a blue/green color too, I will be asking your opinion on which seems best later. Anyway here's a picture of the scarf.

Well, that's quite pretty! I'm one of those Homespun fans.

Which color is this? Are you gonna add fringe? (Maybe not if it's for a guy!)

I like it and think it makes a great Christmas gift!

I like it! I am doing one right now on size 13's, I think I cast on 15 widthwise, not lengthwise like you did, but next time I might try that!!!

Thanks guys. There are times when a fast knit is fantastic, such quick gratification!

Homespun, I'm pretty sure that I won't be adding a fringe (unless the recipient changes...). As for the color, I'm not completely sure since it was from a bag of 'mill ends' that I got as a bargain, but I'm pretty sure that it is "Creole". Hope that helps, here's another picture, which makes it look a completely different color....

It's beautiful, and I love the color. I've done two Christmas gift scarves in Homespun, using sz 19 needles, and holding two strands of yarn together. They're so soft and squishy.
