FO: Apres-Ski Kerchief from Handknit Holidays

Background: We're going on a 4 day ski trip next weekend.
Problem: My hair looks like total ass from being smooshed under a hat all day
Solution: Apres-Ski Kerchief from Handknit Holidays
Yarn: 1 skein of Blue Sky Alpaca worsted hand-dyes in green (50% Alpaca/50% Merino)
Needles: 24" size 9 Denise Interchangeable Circs
Time to complete: 1 weekend
Notes: I used the yarn suggested in the pattern and I *loved* working with it. Malabrigo was my favorite yarn prior to this, but this might beat it out! Unforunately, at $19 for 100 yards, I don't think I'll be working with it as often as I would like. I would kill for a sweater made out of this stuff. Luckily thanks to a friendly knitswapper, I have 2 more skeins of this stuff in blue and I can't wait to find something to make with it. This pattern was a really fun and easy knit. I really like the panel up the middle. I don't feel right in calling in "lace" since it's a kind of a bulky yarn and just created with yarn overs and decreases, but I like it whatever it is!
