Mother's Day scarf
Hello!

Just thought I'd share a picture of the scarf I knitted for my mom for Mother's Day.

It's made from 30% merino and 70% acrylic yarn. It was fun to knit, despite having to barricade myself in my room in the afternoons... I think I'll make one for myself, too, in a different color.

Thanks for lookin'!

Lovely! She was undoubtedly thrilled to receive such a beautiful scarf, lovingly hand knitted. It's beautiful and the color is perfect!
