My hubby is the type who wears shorts and t-shirts year-round, which makes for limited knitting opportunities. However, ski season is approaching, and I had some yummy chocolate-colored alpaca. Voila, a scarf for skiing, made to his exact specs (not too long, not too frou-frou, no fringes). The alpaca was only sport weight, so I added a strand of Araucania wool, black in parts and variegated blue in others. Not very exciting knitting (just seed stitch) but at least he'll actually wear it.
PS--Yes, that's a pile of laundry in the background, waiting to be folded. I have my priorities straight.
