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.
