Belated Birthday Gifts
So in my last post I mentioned the blizzard that happened here in Baltimore this past February (or Snowmageddon, Snowpocalypse, or Snowverkill as they were "affectionately" called). This of course was the week that my parents jetted off to Arizona to visit my little sister who is currently teaching out there. While this was bad for me because the littlest sister and I had to shovel out the car, it was good because I could send along this lovely scarf that I made for the sister for her birthday (it was only a week late!) This was made with Naturallycaron.com Spa on size 7 needles. I used the "Green Sheen" and the "Ocean Spray" colors. I really like the softness of this yarn, it's a bamboo and acrylic blend, but it's VERY splitty which makes knitting with it a little harder than I'd like, it takes a lot of concentration. Overall though, my sister loved it and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.
