I intend to make a large dent into this scarf today. I slowed down after a quick start because I needed to prepare and spin the white yarn. These colors were chosen because they are the Fredonia colors. Fredonia is a college known for it's theater and dance program among others. You can also study math there. This is the college that Dan's girlfriend attends.
The blue yarn is a mohair/Corriedale blend and the white yarn is cudly soft Albert (Finn).
More info on the vest is here.
