Unexpected gifts

On my "day off" on Monday, I was actually quite productive. I found a book that a friend of mine wanted to borrow, I wrote a pattern, I worked on a hat for a friend, I thinned my yarn stash by a whole laundry basket full, and....

I found a scarf that I started for Captain probably a year ago! The scarf was 3/4 complete, I found the hook with the project, and somehow, miraculously, I found the stitch pattern! So, I finished the scarf and Captain is getting it for Christmas this year!
I call it the "Flat-tire scarf" because it resembles tire tread and it's wool, so it would keep you warm if you had to change a flat tire. (That's as clever as it gets, folks). It is a Tunisian design in a combination of two stitches. It's black (of course, he wouldn't wear anything else), with a little bit of texture. It's made with 2 balls of Lion Wool. If he doesn't like it, I can felt it and give it to Chief! But, he should like it, because it's pretty basic. No, I'm not worried that he will see this, because I don't think he reads this blog, and if I'm wrong, I'll be the one who is surprised!
