So I decided to make my mom something from what yarn I had, since anything I could afford would have been from CraigsList's 'Free' section
I made a scarf!
Here's the card, the front I did with some crayons
(I went to the store for some glue, saw the crayons, and knew what had to happen
And the inside is printed from http://someecards.com/
(I used a sharpie to adjust the hair and make some glasses on the little girl to make it look like me
And here they are ready to be boxed up and shipped out
The scarf is basically the Flowered Scarf from the free crochet pattern section in JoAnn's site (http://www.joann.com/joann/
), but with the width added, a sc border, and instead of their flowers, one flower that's actually from the Klutz crocheting book Update:
The package arrived while I was on the phone with her today! She loved it!
