I've been giving this new scarf that I knitted last week a test run over the weekend, it's certainly cold enough. The verdict -- long, luxurious, light and warm. Boucle wool is awful to knit with. To make it go quick I used an open lacy pattern which works because the wool is interesting in it's own right. Reflection: Proverbs 31:10-13 (New International Version) "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value. She brings him good, not harm, all the days of her life. She selects wool and flax and works with eager hands."
