Behold la Scarf de Boobie

I got the idea from Knitty (.pdf) and gave it to my roommates mom, who just so happens to be a breast cancer survivor, for Christmas.

Isn't it great? It knit it up in only a week and it was so fun. It was great seeing the look on her face when she unwrapped it, too.

I can't remember the exact name of the yarn at present but it was a 50% Llama and 50% wool blend knit on size 6 needles, giving it a softer feel yet hairier (new word) look. The tweed used in the pattern just wasn't calling to me. K's mom has already worn it to various Dr.'s appointments (and of course church) and gotten many compliments on it.
