FO--My So Called Scarf
This is my first FO worth showing. It was easy, but it took me a couple of weeks.

I used 2 skeins of Manos del Uruguay in color 113. I got the pattern from http://www.sheepinthecity.prettyposi...es/000079.html. I used the same yarn as she did because I loved the colors so muchI

The yarn was great to work.

First FO post, hope I did it right!

Hi everyone, thank you for all the kind words. I am very happy with the way the scarf turned out, but now of course our weather is in the 50's to 60's. Oh well I have been wearing it anyways.

The yarn is 100% wool, so it is not as soft as I would like, but it is softer than other wools I have felt. I also had trouble with the pattern at first, I would alway lose a stitch, so I counted my stitches after each row.

Yes the colorway is "wildflower". Manos has so many beautiful colorways, but that one just called my name.

Thanks
Andrea
