Funky Scarf Swap

Let’s get the allergy part out of the way. Are you allergic to any fibers?I'm not allergic to fibers, but I am sensitive to floral (and other sweet or heavy) smells.

Do you prefer any fibers over others?There are so many fabulous fibers available...but I can't see regular worsted weight acrylic as a favorite for funky...then again, I could be wrong!

Thinking back to Scout’s post about what funky means to you, post an image of something that you think is funky! I see funky as a unique construction, way cool yarn, OR a combination of the two. For the construction, that could be the mobius scarf or the one from Knitty ( http://knitty.com/archive.html ) or for the Yarn, this is so cool (the so called scarf and his dish clothes! http://criminyjickets.blogspot.com/ )

Would you prefer funky yarn or a funky pattern? Which ever works best for my partner!

What are your favorite colors? I love jewel tones...ruby, sapphire blue, emerald greens, purples, even turquoise!

What is your favorite piece of art? Starry, starry night Van Gogh

What colors would you never have up close to your pretty face? Orange or yellow...I like blue tones of red though!

Would you prefer an actual scarf or a cowl? scarf...or something not tight...it is sort of a confined space problem of mine

When you wear a scarf do you prefer a wider/shorter scarf or a thin/long scarf? Long/Thin lol...although I"m only 5'3" so perhaps thin/medium??!

What is the climate like where you live? I'm in Montana...scarves are a part of life!

Would you prefer a functional scarf (to keep you warm) or one just to funk-up your wardrobe? Which ever works best for my partner...I found my new classroom is COLD all winter long, so I could do either!

What else would you like your partner to know about you? I teach high school math, but I also help the students who are learning to knit...that usually happens in the last 20 minutes of class time. If my partner needs more info, I would LOVE to help out!

Hi, you asked about mittens and hats. Is there a specific pattern I can help you size up or down? The ones on my blog are some of my own and some that are from other sources. Let me know how I can help.
