Itchy but Pretty

One Saturday, not too long ago, Noah and I were walking along the downtown mall, and being the amazing man that he is, wanted to buy me some new yarn. In the spirit of being frugal, I haven't bought any yarn in a long long while, so this was such a wonderful present. I knew what I wanted to make, having seen JaKnit's suggestion of the Cowl. So, I found this beauty at the LYS:

That evening I immediately went to work, and just recently finished the Beech Wood:

I think this yarn is very beautiful and very natural-looking, but I wasn't thinking when I picked it out for this particular project, because it's also itchy on my bare skin. Therefore, I plan on wearing this when I'm already wearing a turtleneck. One thing's for sure - it will keep me warm!

I am also working on this little number, the Reversible Cable Scarf:

This is for my co-worker and friend, Jackie. She saw it one day at work and one thing led to another and I asked her if she would like for me to make her anything. She made eyes at the scarf in my hand and that was that. I think it suits her well, and I know for sure she will appreciate it.

Lovely cowl, and lovely scarf! Is there a pattern available for the scarf?
