Misha's Scarf

Went well. Only had to rip back a couple of times, and not very far. Was able to recover the pattern easily when this happened. Just need to wash & block, then I can give it to Misha! :)

Actually, one issue with the yarn: one of the two balls I bought seemed to have some human hair (?!) wrapped around some of the yarn in various places. I think it was human hair because it was straight, taught, dark brown and was wrapped around the yarn, not spun in with it. It made me wonder what kind of conditions the factory workers who made this yarn are in. It also kind of disgusted me as I pondered the story from Fast Food Nation (the novel, not the movie), and considered it may have similar hold in the factory-made yarn industry. I really have no idea though, and would like either some facts or reassurance about it.
