Off the needles: Fox Scarf

Another stash busting project finished. This is another Morehouse Farm pattern from their "Critters Scarves" collection. It reminds me of the fox stoles that ladies used to wear. I remember as a child sitting in a church pew behind one of the ladies who wore one. It was creepy, yet fascinating, staring into the glass eyes of the dead fox. This knitted one is much cuter.

The yarn is from a sweater that I started decades ago & never finished...and never would finish. Not sure what the yarn is, but appears to have at least some mohair content. The rust color was perfect for a red fox. I gave it to my nephew's girlfriend on New Year's Eve. She's a new knitter and I was so happy that the fox found an appreciative home.
