Another grey wisp, a thick winter scarf, and a birthday surprise

NOTE: Please make sure to read all the way to the bottom of the post for a birthday surprise!!

One of my work colleagues saw the Little Wisp of Smoke I made for Marienell and asked for one in the same color. I used Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud in the smoke colorway, but I cast on fewer stitches than I did in Marienell's version, so this shawl is actually the same size as the one in the original pattern by Cheryl Niamath. I was hoping to take pictures earlier in the day but time got away from me, so I improvised and took pictures in the dining hall where the lighting was better. It came out so light and airy that it was hard to photograph.

While working on this wisp for Jessica, I started a quick scarf project that I could take along to meetings and doctor's appointments etc. I settled on the Scrunchable Scarf pattern by Susan McConne. It's a lovely, simple pattern that works in all different yarn weights. I made the scarf with two skeins of Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick in the Butterscotch colorway, and the scarf is absolutely gorgeous! It's soft and squishy and long (72 inches)! I think this is the perfect accessory for any winter wardrobe. The scarf is now available in my Etsy Shop
