FO's: gifts for granddaughters
So I finally finished up this one little hank of Malabrigo laceweight yarn. Gads but there is a ton of yardage in these little suckers. Well, I only purchased one, thank heavens.

Anyway, I knit one scarf with about half the yarn, which I shared with you, and another scarf with the other larger half. I thought I'd never get to the end of this yarn!

Here is the latest scarf. It's the Leaf Lace pattern. It looks a lot like the other pattern stitch when they're all blocked out.



Here is the first scarf, the pattern being the "Green Gables" design:


Here they are together, all set for their new home!


I paid $7.69 for this hank. Goodness. Each 100% merino scarf cost 3.85! I can hardly believe it. You'd pay $100 at Nordstrom for a scarf like this. Of course, their prices are over-the-top, but just saying.

Beautiful scarves in wonderful colors. You couldn't find anything so fine at Nordstroms, not for ready money.

My daughter, Lauralee, used to work for Nordstrom, not too long ago. One of her positions for a while was in accessories. She couldn't believe it, how $100-$150 scarves were right out there for public handling. But there were also scarves that were behind glass casing...that sold for hundreds of dollars.

The $100-$150 scarves were (IMO) nothing too special either.

Even though these two scarves cost me $3.85 each in yarn, I wouldn't sell them for less than $100. When you consider stitches and time involved. And there isn't one error in either of them.

No, it isn't. I think they'd look less like f 'n' f with a solid color yarn.
They're really quite different than f 'n' f pattern stitch.
