About 5 months after completing the scarf I was knitting for my friend I finally gave it to her. We had been away from the archery club where I see her for that length of time. She loved the scarf and gave me a big hug for it.
I told her there should be enough yarn left over for a hat and suggested she find a pattern using the weight of yarn and size of needles that I used for the scarf. She said she would do that, as she does know of a lys she could get it from.
Making someone happy with your knitting is lovely.
