Knitting

Here's what I knitted for Mother for her birthday tomorrow. This is the first garment I've made, and it took a long time since I'm a social knitter and only worked on it at Yarn Frenzy.  I'd knitted scarves and hats, and finished a couple of scarves during this cardigan even though I'm usually a monogamous knitter.  This required measuring and math and fitting!  That was a first for me. 


My next project is a ruana for myself. Who besides Maddie knows what that is? I just learned it but am slow about some things.

Beautiful!

And Maddie failed to share the whole ruana thing with me but I know how to Google stuff. Tres chic.

Thank you!! I appreciate all your compliments and encouragement!! Mother tried it on yesterday and really likes it. At least it didn't take me as long as it did Michelangelo to paint the Sistine Ceiling but a long time!
