You have to be a patient and understanding person to be married to a LYSO (local yarn shop owner). I mean, day after day, Al (husband)watches me knit on something. It’s hard to believe he doesn’t have a lot of handknit items that have come off my needles, but he doesn’t. For those of you who know Al, he loves his Jeep. I chose this yarn because of its softness and color (errr, his Jeep is green). I chose the pattern because it has that ‘gee whiz’ factor that is great for conversations. Al is always talking up Renaissance Yarns so this is perfect for him to continue finding new customers! Besides, it is about time he gets something that I’ve knit!
For my ‘peanut gallery’, whomever you may be, yes, this means I finished a project!

About the pattern: Vintage Velvet by Lisa Daniels found in the book "Scarf Style"
About the yarn: 3 hanks of Cascade Baby Alpaca Chunky (100% baby alpaca) 3.5 sts/inch on US 10
