Just think some College kid will receive my handknit scarf as modeled by the lovely George here. George is as high fashion as it gets, Baby! Clickety Biggety!
George was petting TKK when I took this photo. (Yes, the scarf was washed after it touched the kitty.) TKK said she wanted to be in the photo, but you know how models and their egos can be. So we had to take another photo of her without George or the scarf to show off just how vivacious and fuzzy she is. Truly the cutest kitty ever.
She knows how to work the camera. That and she was trying to lick it. :P
Some details on the scarf:

I'll use that to make Hats for the Charity Box at Deluxe Yarns for the local homeless & needy.

Again? YES! It was a fun easy knit and the honey liked it so he'll likely get one in the Blue and Black Colorway. :D Nothing like some mindless knitting to make you all nice and relaxed when things are kinda stressy.
Notes: This was my first Completed Scarf using Garter Stitch as more than a border. *L* The scarf is 6 feet long and 5.5 inches wide. This scarf was started with some friends when I was too brain dead to knit on the socks I had with me at the time. It's been knit on in four states and through several drinks and travels. Heh.
Random Observation: It just occurred to me that George kinda looks like Jerri Blank's Father, Guy.

I'm glad I finished the scarf in time. Now I just need to get a gift certificate, write a note and care instructions and mail it off.
In other news I finished another pair of socks... *happy dance*
