Hat and Scarf Set

So I haven't posted for a little bit because once again I've exceeded my download limit, so I'm using work computers, which feels weird...but anyway.

The lovely librarylass was having a yarn giveaway on her blog, and I was one of the lucky winners. Anyway, I won this lovely merino-mohair blend (although it now means after working with nice yarn I have to start spending more on it!), and the yarn told me it wanted to be a scarf and hat (I'm not sure when I started picking up psychic messages from yarn, but it is a little scary!). So a scarf and hat it became.

Both patterns are from Crochet me. The hat is The Professional and the scarf is Shelly. I think they'll be really handy once it starts getting into winter.

I've still got a reasonably amount of the yarn left, and at the moment I'm thinking of mixing it with some Alpaca yarn I've got and making a felted bag, but I guess I'll see what the yarn tells me!

And on the topic of librarians (vaguely, but I know two of you work in libraries so I thought I'd go with it) I saw a very amusing movie the other day. It was 'The Librarian 2 - Return to King Solomon's Mines' and it was as good as the title sounds. One of my friends was reviewing it and so had a movie night, which was good, because it's one of those movies that you get lots of enjoyment out of picking the baddies, what's going to happen, what other movie's they're ripping off, and making fun of the malnourished love interest (sometimes audience participation is better than the film!). We also had a librarian watching and he had fun saying stuff like 'He should be wearing gloves handling that book' etc, and a couple of people decided to play a drinking game, drinking when 'librarian like' things were done. Although that game finished when the beer got spilt.
