I made both of these a while ago and thought I posted them, but apparently I forgot to.

I found this warm-gold colored yarn on sale and knew it had to be made into a scarf; it was such a soft bamboo yarn. Unfortunately I did not know at the time how heavy bamboo yarns can be. My scarf tends to stretch itself out  Embarrassed , but I still love it.

The pattern is Knitty's Lace Ribbon Scarf.

And here is how_german's mermaid tam. I love this hat and really want a bunch in different colors. I believe the yarn was Knit pick's wool of the andes.

Thanks for looking!

Oh wow, that scarf is so lovely! That's a really unique pattern, and the yarn is so beautiful too. I bet you can't wait for autumn now! I would wear that every day!  Smiley

They're both excellent.
The scarf is beautiful, and the color is really nice too.

They are both great. I especially love the scarf. The nice bright color is smile inducing. I really like bamboo yarn and think it makes really nice scarves - even if they are a bit heavy. It's also SO nice to knit with.

I love the hat!  What pattern did you use? Is it on Ravely? My sister has been bugging me to make her a floppy hat and that one looks perfect.

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley

bebedechocolate-> how_german posted it both on craftster and ravelry. I think that the ravelry page will direct you to the craftster post for the pattern. The pattern is called Mermaid Slouchy Tam. I really recommend this pattern! I had a hard time choosing my color scheme cause there was so many colors I wanted to do it in  Wink I am definitely going to have to make another one.

Here is the craftster post: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=233059.0

On can never have too many scarves.  This one is great.  I love the color but I know what you mean about bamboo yarn.  I may have to try this pattern out myself.
