Harvest Recipe

Napa Harvest Scarf

1 skein of Misti Alpaca hand painted chunky baby alpaca (no baby alpacas were harmed in the making of this scarf)

1 pair size 17 knitting needles

1 miserably hot weekend

Cast on 14 stitches (I used the cable method, but use your method of choice).

Knit each row (garter stitch) until you are about out of yarn (no purls, Kris!). :)

Bind off. Weave in ends. Block (with alpaca, you can pin and mist with water, let dry, but I gave it a brief soak in Soak, pressed moisture, pinned and it was dry in a nano second given the fact that it's 90 degrees in my living room -- why? because with the unbearable heat and resultant sweaty palms, I wanted to give my new scarf a well-deserved bath).

Serves one. Enjoy selflishly -- you deserve it!!! :)
