I can't believe I have started *four* patterns from the same book - this is a first in my knitting household! Two of the projects are complete: the Misty Garden scarf and the Vintage Velvet scarf.
Misty Garden was knit with the suggested Jo Sharp mohair in Earl Grey (which is more purple than gray, by the way). I used one extra skein to make the scarf a bit longer, as the recipient of my scarf pointed out that this winter's scarf style, in the true sense, was very long, medium-width scarves. I was happy to oblige. :) This yarn is softer than you think, but can be a pain to rip, and is significantly more pleasurable to knit on bamboo's than metal (trust me).
I am having some trouble sending photos (this bloggerbot thing is no good!), so below you will also see the Vintage Velvet done in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk, in a marigold color. This scarf was done on size 8's, bamboo also, and is incredibly soft and warm. I used four skeins.
