Ok, I haven't been around for a while...I've been sorting through some "stuff" but I'm back and look at what I've been doing!!

The Irish Hiking Scarf was supposed to be for my Dad for Christmas, but, well....you know how it goes. It is a soft charcoal gray. I used Caron Simply Soft. Finished....it measures 6ft.

The Palindrome is for my Mom...also for Christmas:shrug: I LOVE how this is working out. I also used Caron Simply Soft for this and the color is a perfect match for her coat. I'm excited about finishing it for her....luckily she doesn't want 6ft of scarf....oi:thud:

I have to say that the feeling of accomplishment is AMAZING.

I'm sure they will be delighted to get them whenever they do...as they say better late than never!! I gave my Mom beautiful wool for a sweater on her birthday...TWO YEARS ago and all I've done is the swatch!

Anyway, I love both the scarves and the colors are beautiful!!:cheering:

Scarfs! Perfect year-round in Michigan! Especially since it has been known to snow in April!! ;)

Great job!
