For Momma

After much delay, here are the scarves I made for Mother's Day.

For my own mom, this is the Fan and Feather Stole from Vogue Knitting's Scarves in Berroco Cotton Twist. Here is it fringed, blocked, and folded.

For my Mother in Law, I made Knitty's Branching Out in Falcon's mohair/courtelle blend. I tried to get tricky on the digital photography, but the blue background made the white mohair look baby blue. Even worse, I didn't weave in the ends or block it before I took this photo.

And now for Grandma. This is Stitchngirl's Dayflower Lace Scarf, also done in Falcon mohair/courtelle blend. And also not blocked or ends-woven-in before the picture was taken. The pattern is even more pretty after blocking!


I really loved making these scarves, they were my first lace projects and I had a great time doing them and watching the pattern evolve under my fingertips.

Enjoy, mammas!
