My mom came to Brooklyn this past weekend for Mother's Day, and she left fully stocked with knit goods. Well, maybe "fully stocked" is an overstatement, but she did leave with this scarf:
Its a basic feather and fan pattern. I followed the pattern from Scarf Style word for word because I am a feather+fan newbie. Here's a close up.
The yarn is Cascade Bollicine Sissi, which is a variegated mohair. I used only one skein, with leftovers.
Mom also made off with my Ribby Cardi. To tell the truth, it never really did anything for me, kinda short and uneven at the bottom, and I was thinking about undoing it. But it looked a lot better on Mom. and even though she is from Arizona, she is still always cold.
I just love when knitwear finds a good home.
