I finished my scarf for the International Scarf Exchange awhile ago but I didn't want to post it unitl my pal had received it. The ISE II was the first exchange I ever participated in and so it holds a special place in my heart. This is now my third time participating in ISE and I have really enjoyed it. The first time I made a clapotis, the second time a Mathew's scarf and then this time I was gearing up to make something lace when I got Randy as my pal! Well the lace patterns went out the window and I searched and searched. I had landed on the cable pattern from OneSkein (there is even a guy wearing it in the photo in the book) and I bought the yarn for that. Then when Jennifer and I were shopping in Boston I saw this scarf and decided it was perfect. It was fun to knit and I'm happy with how it turned out. Horsey Girl kept asking how I was coming on my "Man Scarf!" Gee now that I type this I'm wondering what I did with the yarn I bought for the other one . . . . Anyway, the scarf went all the way to Japan and here is Randy wearing it - I think it looks great on him! It was fun to get to know Randy - he seems like a really great guy. I can't wait to get my scarf from my upstream pal. I'll show you all when it arrives!
