Before I say anything else, I want to say thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes. They really meant a lot to me. You are all awesome I tell ya, awesome! Here's a big huuuuuuugggggggggggg from me to all of you!!

The scarf above was knit with Frog Tree Alpaca on a size 10 needle. I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn, except for the fact that it shed a little bit. I think that the shedding would stop, or at least lessen, after a while though. The yarn has a wonderfully soft hand, the halo is just beautiful, and I love the way it drapes. If I were to do another one of these scarves, I would start off by casting on only 100 stitches instead of 200. That way the scarf wouldn't come out quite as long as it did this time. After all the increasing was done I had 2000 stitches on my needle. Casting off took a while, hahaha! This pattern recommends casting on 90.
