FO: Wavy Gravy Hat and Scarf
I made the scarf first, after modifying the hat pattern so I could knit it on straight needles, then I knit the hat as an after thought. The yarn is Manos del Uruguay. I used two skeins of #113 Wildflower and US size 11 needles for the scarf and about 2/3 to 3/4 of a skein, of the same color, and US size 10 1/2 dpns for the hat.

It was going to be a gift for my knitting mentor, but, I found out that she has skin problems and can't tolerate wool. I will make her another set using an acrylic yarn I know she likes. This is now going to my very good friend as a gift.

Thank you for letting me share. =)
