FO: Ribbed Mini-Scarf for John Z
This was a quick and easy 2-day project for my father-in-law. He is 88 years old, and recently recovered from bronchitis, so I wanted to make him something to keep the cold wind off his throat and chest when he goes out. The pattern is a free Ravelry download: Ribbed-mini-scarf. The yarn is some Mission Falls 1824 Wool from my stash.

I must agree with everyone, those colors are really nice looking for a man (or anyone really).
