I signed up for the International Scarf Exchange 3 last month, and earlier this month received my match. My match lives in a colder climate than I, and she prefers rich, fall colors. Lucky me, I found some lovely yarn in the stash hand-dyed by Persimmon Tree Farm that I had picked up at this year's Maryland Sheep and Wool festival. I am also using a stitch pattern whose name I do not know, but has been circulating the web as a free Manos pattern. See how nice it is all coming together:
The only concern I have is that the scarf does not look very wide. It's about 4 inches. I may rip it out and cast on with more stitches.
