Last of the Sibling-In-Law FOs
This isn't anything fancy, but I'm just happy to have FINALLY finished this scarf. I bought the yarn back in April, started a plain garter stitch scarf, realized my needles were too small to show off the yarn, so I frogged it. When I switched to bigger needles, I decided to play with something besides straight garter stitch, so I started doing an elongated stitch pattern with random-sized patches of garter in between. It's a great pattern for this ribbonny yarn b/c it shows of the little embroirdered flowers that make up the true lovelyness of the yarn.

This is for my SIL Lynn, married to BIL Brian who is getting the blue baby alpaca toque.



And a closeup:

Looks great. I think the change in pattern really did the yarn justice
