No..... my mom is long gone

No..... my mom is long gone but my partner's mom is still around at 94. She returns everything she gets, or it gets put on a shelf to gather dust, so we will just take her out to dinner.

Count me as a no too. I

Count me as a no too. I could knit my mom an urn cozy, but that would be weird. I may knit my step-mother something for Christmas, but it won't happen for mother's day.

NOTHING! After my mom

NOTHING!

After my mom returned three hats I knitted her, telling me to put them in the Christmas White Elephant, she's never getting something unless she expressly asks me to knit it.

My Mom's in Houston too!

My Mom's in Houston too! Funny, that.

I'm making her a shawl-ish wrap-like ponchoid sweater that's basically four big mitred squares. It's in Manos Del Uruguay and is a manos pattern. I should be done with the squares this weekend and then border, block and box it up! (oh, and take a few pictures of it.) I'm surprising her by hand-delivering it. It's the first thing I've ever made for her, so I'm all nervous and such... :-)

Nothing for mom. However,

Nothing for mom. However, she will get a lovely card and a phone call. Mom lives in Houston; so, I'm not sure if a sweater or scarf would work well. Though, now that I think about it, with the airconditioning there, they might come in useful in the summer months.

you forgot "no"

I knit my mom a shawl a few years ago that was a a depiction of their marriage and our family in lace. It took months - so I figure I'm set for a few years. we got her some flowers this year.
