Here it is, blocked and ready. I'm very happy with it and just hope my mother in law is as well. I hope I can let it go, accept it will be hers to do with as she wishes and if she wishes to put it in the back of a wardrobe like last year's scarf so be it.
It opened up beautifully with blocking and is now about 68” long, perfect for my mother in law who is about 5'9” I believe scarves should be about as long as you are tall.
I'm now all ready for Christmas and settled in at the in-laws, I was optimistic with packing my knitting:
That very stuffing project bag contains my mum's (still unfinished, oops!) Ishbel, the EZ mitten and if those don't keep me entertained a cabled sock project.
Gifts are piled high under my in-laws' ridiculously large tree and I am very much looking forward to tomorrow and the days we are staying here.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas if you celebrate it, or an enjoyable 25th December and a great weekend if you don't.
