2011 FO #10 - Mel's Peaks Island Hood

This project was one that I completed as part of a swap.  Mel had some lovely dark brown hand spun which she wanted knit up into a scarf with a hood in the middle.  It turned out really nicely :-)

Ah, just what we need in this chilly winter weather that dries out the skin - knitting that moisturises!
