Hi Everyone,

I'm a little late in posting these, but I thought I'd post pictures of my cutie pie grandmas and the scarves that I made them for Christmas.  I followed the Reversible Lace Ladders Scarf pattern found on the heartstringsfiberarts.com  website (which doesn't seem to be working right now).  For the blue one I used a silky wool and for the red one I used a bright red mohair.  Each grandma loved hers and was happy with the colour/yarn choice Smiley

Once I got the pattern going the scarves weren't too hard to make, but I still made a lot of mistakes - but it just adds character right??  It was my first attempt at making lace peices.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Your Grandmas are sweet.  I hope red Grandma's arm is better.

Your grandmas are so sweet, and those scarves are pretty. I really like the red one.

Here's mine in the the scarf I knit her this Christmas:

It's a ruffled scarf from the little box of scarves, made of Cascade superwash.

 She was happy! She keeps on telling me, "don't loose that pattern!"

I think she was aware that I'd started knitting again (I used to knit really bad, wide scarves when I was about 15), but I don't think she was expecting something that didn't have mistakes.

So at christmas, she flipped through all the cool knitting books people gave me and quietly stroked the hot pink chenille I got as a gift. Now she wants me to take her to my LYS so she can see the new world of knitting!
