A little over a year ago, I was six months out of work, deeply frustrated, and broke as hell. A friend of mine found herself in possession of a huge storage container of very nice yarns and, not being a crocheter or knitter, gifted the entire container to me in an act of friendship. I insisted, if she was going to just give me all this yarn, that she pick out whatever yarns she liked the most, and I'd make her some items. I've managed to use most of the yarn she picked out to make her scarves and hats and hand warmers (she loves outerwear).

This scarf is another use of yarn she picked out (Rowan felted tweed, the lighter blue) with the addition of some unlabeled darker blue that I thought really popped. It was going to be her Christmas gift, but then she mentioned she'd rather not exchange gifts this year, so I gave it to her as a just because gift. She tried to argue that it was clearly a planned Christmas gift, but I pointed out that it came from the yarn she'd picked out the year before, so really, it's not anything but a thank you for all the yarn in the first place.

Corner-start with color changes done randomly. I was really just looking for an excuse to do color changes, and I wasn't certain it looked quite right, but my friend specifically mentioned she loved it, and that's all I was going for.
