Swap Package and an FO



I received my Whoduknit Summer yard sale swap package from Norway today! We had $10.00 to spend on whatever bargains we could find. Annie sent some Norwegian superwash sock yarn and some interesting Tutti Frutti yarn which I think will make a great scarf.
I finished my Irish Hiking Scarf but it still needs to be blocked. It was an easy knit and is about 60" long. I'm going to make a matching headband and maybe some fingerless gloves to go with it.
What dreary weather we are having this week!
It stormed over the weekend, torrential rains, thunder storms, power outages and floods, and it looks like more of the same today. Oh well, guess I will have to settle for knitting and reading again today!

Jane your scarf looks great. I never blocked a scarf, it never occurred to me, lol

Nice swap package... is that a troll notecard in the back?

Your scarf is great. It is one of those patterns that I have in my pattern stash. LOL.

And you received a great package from your pal too!

Your scarf is beautiful! I think the fingerless gloves and headband will go well.
