In early January I signed up to participate in a Pay-it-Forward project.
As a participant, I will receive something nice at some point in 2013 and offered to provide five somethings nice during the course of this year. I had four takers and have finished the first project.
The first recipient is our Massage Therapist. She's a generous soul and I completely adore her. Her heat went out more than once (so far) this winter, so I decided to make her a cosy scarf.
I chose the The Minimalist Scarf and had a good amount of an Autumny Manos del Uruguay yarn in my stash that was waiting for the perfect something... some yarns have to come home with you even if they have no specific project.
I was about 1/3 through this project when I realized the error of my purling ways, so I continued to knit standard and purl through the back loop.
It's a little wider and a lot longer than the pattern called for. Just the way I like it.
I hear she likes it too. :-)
Happy Fiber Arts Friday.
