Three scarves, knit for charity (specifically for the scarves for the homeless drive at my church)
Pattern: Multi-directional diagonal scarf. Each scarf is made of short-row polygons with 3 sides (also known as triangles).
Each scarf was made of 3 skeins of Patons Soy Wool Stripes.
Natural Blue (which has a surprising amount of brown in it):
The yarn is very soft in the skein, and knits up nicely, although it's not quite so soft as garter stitch. The main virtue of this yarn is, I think, that it's inexpensive. It cost wonderfully little money. Unfortunately, the was one drawback: knots. In 9 skeins, there were 7 knots. But for an inexpensive yarn, it's really quite charming - soft, warm, and with much less raw vegetable matter than Lopi.
