Barbara was working on this scarf while sitting vigil during a family member's surgery. She had bought "cheap yarn" to do a practice scarf before using the Misti Alpaca Chunky that we sell. The guard, who sat outside the recovery room, was so impressed with her knitting. And, he just couldn't believe that she started and finished this scarf in the waiting room. He liked the scarf so much that Barbara decided to give it to him. She left the room and returned later to find him sitting at his post outside the recovery room wearing the ruffled scarf, tail hanging and all. How sweet is that?!#
P.S. The pattern is free on Misti Alpaca's website and is made from Chunky alpaca.
