I Couldn't Wait!
Sorry, I cheated! I just couldn't wait til the 1st to start. I went out last weekend to buy the yarn and got Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in a natural/tan-ish color. It's for my dad for Christmas; he's getting a hat with earflaps too, at his request. I resisted til Tuesday (and settled for just petting the yarn every so often) but I just HAD to start. I've done the first 28 rows and so far it looks fantastic. If I get a chance later today or tomorrow I'll post a picture :) I can't wait to see how everyone else's scarves turn out too!
