Pumpkin Butternut

From a gracious yarn swap with a lovely lady, I acquired some of this:


Little Lola from Schaefer Yarn Company in Pumpkin Cheesecake.
For a while now I have loved this pattern from Anne Hanson of Knitspot called Butternut Scarf:

Of course, the pattern calls for lace weight yarn and my mind screamed worsted for some reason.  Actually, I wanted a wide and long scarf/wrap because that has become my knitwear of choice in our rather mild winters.  Taking the pattern, I modified the number of repeats and needle size.  Once blocked, I think it will be about 20 inches wide and I'm shooting for about 84 inches in length.

When the little Lola arrived, I knew exactly what it was meant to be:


Here is a gratuitous shot in a little more natural environment, the very back of the yard:
This has quickly become one of my favorite knits, ever!
Thank you, Maria, for the wonderful yarn.

That color is going to look great on you!
Such a beautiful pattern.
That does seem to be all one needs in the winter, except for a few days here and there. LOVE that fact!
