Setter Scarf Autumn Colors

 Hand knitted double moss stitch scarf number two in autumn hunting hues, some other yarns mixed into the main Rowan Lightweight DK wool, odds and ends of soft cashmere mixes in broccoli sprout green and dark moss, with some tomato dyed soft green in lighter hues.
 The sweeties are waiting for breakfast after a long morning walkies, but I managed to coax some setter poses out of Sherlock with a bit of banana.
 Since it's a knit, there's a bit of stretch in there even though it is blocked and it is good for Nobunaga's neck size too (36~43cm), although Nobu's not too keen on photos after the long walkies, he's a bit overheated and trying to cool down. Who wears it better, Sherlock or Nobu? It's going to the Gundog Rescue CACI weekly charity auction or raffle, sending it over tomorrow if I can pop to the post office. Join the group and make a bid by posting a sum higher than the previous bidder in the comments, deadlines Sunday evenings 10pm. Not sure when it will be on the block, but hope the two scarves will raise a pretty penny or two...
