I have a huge surprise for you, too!
That would be a picture of my Mom, wearing her long awaited armwarmers! I finally settled on a pattern, Fetching, and it was perfect for the Karaoke I'd bought long ago for this project.
They were very well received. Mom says they keep her nice and toasty at her job.
Where did this scarf come from, you say? Why Rick made it! He finished his scarf a couple of weeks back and has really picked up knitting. So far he's made this scarf, a matching hat, two washcloths, and is wanting to start on a pair of armwarmers!
This is a washcloth I made awhile back out of some Cotlin. It's made from the Ripple Washcloth pattern. It was a nice quick, done in one evening washcloth, as was this one:
Which was made from the Baby Fern pattern.
Oh, and one last thing-I started on the Hemlock Ring Blanket recently, too. I don't have a picture of it yet, so it will have to wait!
