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.

Great work on the lace bits!  And your Grandmas are TOO CUTE!!! 

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

I have a sewing machine, and I know how to use it

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.

Ananas, I really like that ruffle scarf.  Your grandma looks happy in the picture Smiley

 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!
