My Gram's birthday is tomorrow (Halloween) and I finished her scarf just in time! It was a really quick knit, but it kind of went a little slow because I only did a few repeats a day.

I need to get those needles from Punk Knits...thanks for reminding me. I haven't been to their site in a while.

Beautiful colorway on that scarf!

Thanks you guys!

We brought Gram out for breakfast this morning. It was about 40 degrees outside, so I grabbed her scarf and asked her if she'd like her birthday present. She said no, but I told her it was cold outside so she had no choice. I handed it to her and her whole face lit up.

She loved it. "Oooh! It's my color and everything!!"

At least I got one thing right today :)

And those needles are really great to work with, but they're a little on the heavy side. So if you're used to doing only socks, your arms might ache a little until they get used to em. :)
