Sometime this fall, I received an email from The Web.sters, that wonderful knitting store in Ashland, OR. They were advertising the Dream in Color October 2012 club offering - The Autumn Fern Mobius, designed by Jessica Correa. The yarn was a merino-silk sock yarn, in a custom colorway.
It looked perfect for my youngest sister - great colors for her, and it's been a while since I've knit for her. So I ordered the kit. And then, in November, I drew her name for Christmas. Yay!
Not quite so good was my idea that I would first finish my son's Urban Aran cardigan first, since I wanted it done before he came home for Christmas.
Unfortunately, on December 25, the scarf was about a foot short of done. So, it was given on the needles, and promptly returned. Luckily, we spend Christmas together.
On December 28, it was finished.
This second shot shows the place where the loop was grafted together, after a half twist.
I was able to deliver it on New Year's Day.
Doesn't she look great?
