I received my scarf from Eric on Friday and couldn't be more happy with it. It is absolutely gorgeous and a perfect match to my jacket. The colors in the picture don't really reflect the beauty of the yarn, the colors are much richer than the photo shows. Eric has done a magnificent job on the scarf and the color choice. He chose a beautiful Merino Wool/Alpaca/Acrylic yarn that is extremely soft and cuddly. The goodies that he enclosed with the scarf were overly generous and included a Starbucks gift card and a very handy yarn requirements guide. I will cherish this scarf for years to come along with his friendship. I'm looking forward to using the scarf this winter if I can get it away from my cats; all four of them have taken turns checking it out and approve full heartily. Thanks again Eric!
