Popcorn Scarf - Baby Alpaca Chunky Paints

 So, at the office we do Secret Santa.  Which means we have a drop dead date to have projects done by (aka deadline).  I'm actually doing pretty well this year - probably mostly because I decided to be realistic as to what I could actually accomplish before Christmas (we are not going to discuss the 4 other projects I am working on).  Last year I took on a rather large project (Feather and Fan wrap in Venezia Worsted) that ended up being taken from me on the flight from Peru back home. Fortunately I did get it back, but lost more than 8 hours of valuable knitting time (the flight attendant was obviously not a knitter - no knitter would actually risk ruining a project to use needles for anything besides knitting while they are occupied with yarn).
Anyway, I digress.  Sadly, Secret Santa is not so secret this year - at least for the person that I have (whom also has me).  I thought it would be fun to try a Popcorn Scarf in Baby Alpaca Chunky Paints.  I used 2 skeins, but could've easily added a third.  It is a very simple, but fun pattern - I have to say I like anything I can work on intermittently and not completely mess up.
