This scarf came about because a friend was setting up the annual “heal thyself with craft” fair at the library, and she lined me up to teach knitting (I had just gotten my level 2 CYCA Knitting Teacher certificate). She gave me the leftover yarn from the event as a thank you! This year the fair happened to fall on Halloween, and so I got a whole bunch of orange yarn. Now, orange is not my color, but there were some fun things included in there, including one skein of Patons Bohemian in (I believe) Cranberry Cafe. This stuff is SO SOFT, but also extra super bulky. I purchased a skein of the Bohemian in black and came up with this scarf. It took about 2/3rds of the black and 1/2 of the cranberry.
