This One Wore Me Out

I bought some lovely looking yarn at the Hemlock Fiber Festival this year. I needed something dark red for my cousin Kate, and didn't have anything suitable in my homespun stash. Too bad she doesn't like hot pink. This is what I bought:

The color was right, but when I knit up a cowl, it came out too lightweight, and just a bit scratchy. I can't stand scratchy. And you can't send a wussy lightweight scarf to someone who lives in New York State.

What to do, what to do?

I spent today knitting a liner for the cowl out of super soft white homespun alpaca.

It took forever, but now it's warm enough to get through a New York winter.
