A belated thanks to my spoilee. When I first got the scarf, I thought, it's beautiful; but, thick. When will I ever use that? My wife proptly reminded me that we go to family in PA once a year, and the mountains several times a year, and at least once when it's cold. And then it snowed, here, in South Carolina, the first snow in several years. Ice yes, snow, no. So I wore my scarf and discovered that with that scarf and a hat, I needed only a tee-shirt to stay warm. Thanks for the warm wooley, chocolate, skein of noro and quick card box of patterns.
