Kevin put his hat in the front ride-pouch while riding Indiana Jones and forgot to get it out when the ride was over. He loved that hat and asked for a replacement.
His friend Laura liked Breezy's yellow hat so much that she asked for it's fraternal twin in black.

I finished these over Labor Day weekend but I think that Janet reads my blog so I couldn't post until I knew she'd opened them. She LOVED this pattern and I nonchalantly asked her what colors she'd do them in if she knitted them. I also knew she'd not have time between then and Christmas so they're a gift from me. Months later I decided she might want a matching hat so here's the set.
She lives in Tennessee so I also sent this neck warmer as part of her Christmas gift. It came out a bit longer than I wanted after it was blocked but I'm hoping that just keeps her warmer during the winter.
She opened it all this morning and says she may not take the mitts off for weeks. Now THAT'S knitting appreciation. :-)

I've probably knit easily one hundred of scarves. Out of all those scarves I have never knit one for myself but our weather doesn't tend to lend itself much to scarves.
After I knit Marlene's red one I fell in love with the color and decided that I needed one in red also. I had to decide on what kind of yarn but there was no hesitation in my yarn choice, Malabrigo in Ravelry Red. The color in the finished photo is not correct but the picture of it on my table is very close to the color. What a pleasure to have around my neck. I might even make myself another scarf someday.
