Scarves...



So, here is my mom's scarf (finally). I did the faggot stitch (why would anyone call it that?). I just tweaked it a bit and added 2 stitches in garter stitch on either side so that it would not look all wonky. All in all, after re-starting a million times, I am happy with how it turned out!




With the extra yarn I made Katherine a scarf.... Fancy, huh? Just a garter stitch. A friend lent me a book with all these different fancy fringes and when I let Katherine pick, this is what she picked.... the basic ordinary run-of-the-mill fringe. Funny, huh?

My first reaction at seeing your post was: Holy smokes! Katherine looks so old! OMG! I don't know why, but it just shocks me that kids keep growing despite me not being able to see them :)

I love the scarves. I've never heard of that stitch before. It seems a bit uncomfortable to say. I wonder how it got its' name. You seem to be getting a lot of knitting donw. You're putting me to shame :)
