QUICK! Mother’s Day is almost here!!!

As you know if you read my last post, my Mom taught me to knit at Christmas. So I thought it only appropriate that she should get the first finished project, right? Well the problem was, I didn’t think about that until last Thursday, with basically just two weeks until Mother’s Day. And I’m a brand new, and therefore, slow, knitter.

Enter, Suri Dream and size 13 needles. About 5 hours of knitting later, I have a beautiful, soft and VERY quick scarf in garter stitch to present to my Mom on May 11.

I used 1 ball of Suri Dream Chili Pepper and as I started to knit, it looked a little too much like I had run over Elmo (the red Sesame Street character) in an unfortunate golf cart accident and was then just draping it around my neck. So I added two stripes on each end of Suri Dream Hand Dyed in Falling Leaves . I really liked how it turned out, the colors work really well with each other. Red is my Mom’s favorite color and it looks really good on her.

I’m just giddy with power having finished my very first knitting project and it was successful enough to actually give it to Mom.

Ok, now back to my Shamrock scarf in seed stitch. <
