Well, after much yarn-monster-untangling and major frustration, I finally finished making Mom’s birthday scarf! I’m fairly pleased with it, although (as per usual), my stitches got tighter as I went along, so the beginning of the scarf is slightly wider than the end. Sigh. I didn’t get a chance to block it, as I was afraid it wouldn’t dry before meeting Mom for her birthday lunch today, but she’ll likely do so the first time she washes it… and that should help a bit. Hopefully she’ll just be happy to receive something I made for her, and look past the imperfections!
I followed the motif in this pattern, using the grey “Sweety” Yarn (80% acrylic, 10% mohair, 10% wool) I received for Christmas. (I should have taken a picture of the yarn before and after making the scarf… it was a huge ball to begin with, and I swear it hasn’t shrunk at all!)
So, here are the pics:
