I'm glad you made it. It's always a relief when you manage to pull something off that you were afraid you might not. :-)

Oh my goodness, I must applaud your devotion to your grandchildren, despite the best efforts of your daughter! You are one amazing grandma, and I promise your grandchildren will thank you for it when they are old enough to know!

I just came across this thread today, but I was on tenterhooks reading it, hoping that your thread would hold out! Great job on the scarf!

I think its a lovely scarf and I am sure you are restricting such bounty to the grandkids!
Same DD, same grandchildren. Why should they suffer for their mother's lack of manners? He needed a nice warm scarf to keep him comfy walking to school. He is a good boy and will appreciate it when it gets cold enough to wear it. I refuse to even acknowledge her actions. I just pay attention to the children.

Hurt me once, shame on you, hurt me twice, shame on me! (my motto when dealing with DD over things I know will hurt me)

Thanks for the compliments! The scarf DID turn out nicely, I think.

My whole kitchen is decorated in cow. The bathroom door is in the kitchen and there is a sign on it saying "cow pasture".
I love my cows. I have all sorts of cows, every imaginable one you could think of. The one in the picture is a cookie jar.

The wider neck section is brilliant. It will keep the back of his neck good and warm.
