jonalyn’s scarf

i have the best farm sitter ever! in june – just after school let’s out (in real life she’s a kindergarten teacher) jonalyn races from the the city to the country so she can spend a week doing farm chores. scooping poop, filling water tanks and overseeing a 100 head of livestock… she thinks she’s at a bed and breakfast…  how to repay her??? maybe with a little cvm wool from Lily, a little angora from Whiskers and a dollop of alpaca hand spun into 2-ply fingering and knit into a lacey, soft and warm scarf with just the perfect amount halo.
