i think that's so awesome that you are going to give it away to a random stranger. that's the best idea i've ever heard. i hope you can take a picture of them because i'd love to see that. i'm sorry he broke up with you in such a jerk way. guys really shouldn't be allowed to act like that.
i really like the scarf you made for your husband and for some reason (i'm not one to be drawn to busy designs) i really like the bag made in squares. its something i might try with my leftover yarn. congrats on your first post ever.
