Winter time knitting

I usually keep a big project for knitting at home and currently it is the Best Friend's Jacket. I almost have one side done and I'm looking forward to it's completion. Out winter's aren't usually too awfully cold in Tennessee (although it CAN be). I think the Best Friend's Jacket will be perfect for most of the winter and it needs a scarf. I made the Garter Stitch Loop-Through Scarf from the book 101 Designer one-skein Wonders. I used Malabrigo for the very first time and now I see what all the hullaballoo is about. It's wonderful to work with and very soft and smooth. I used size 7 needles and it took just under a skein of Malabrigo. The color way is Saphire Magenta.

Yes, Malabrigo is delicious, isn't it. Your scarf is very cute! I may have to hunt for that book/pattern. I really like one-skein Malabrigo projects - makes wonderful gifts.

Love the scarf. I need to make one of those with some black Bonsai I've stashed away.

I love the pattern, but the colorway with it is just to die for! I love it! I got som Malabrigo from a swap partner (the wool and matching angora for a trim) I haven't made anything with it yet, but I am dying for the right pattern. I just keep petting it when ever I feel like knitting but don't know what I want to do.
