Come off my needles

The hat I knitted Saturday morning a week ago, prior to going to meet H for some shopping. The scarf I knit up Sunday.

The scarf has been on my todo list for a very long time (the turquoise yarn is actually the hat which I eventually frogged), but since I bought the yarn I have discovered alpaca yarn and the fact that it does not irritate my skin the way wool from sheep do (such an allergic wreck). The width up and down can be adjusted by letting out the ribbons - the knitting itself is wide enough to go round my shoulders like a poncho.
