went into my LYS on Friday looking for some hat elastic to thread into the ribs of my nieces jacket that's nearly finished and 'found' some of yarn on sale. Seen this flutter yarn 100% polyester in bright red for 98c a ball (50g).
I know someone who's favourite colour is red so I picked up 5 balls and decided to make her a scarf for mothers day.
It ended up being about 5 foot long and about 6 inches wide.
I made it on my knitting machine in about 1 hour and then it took me half an hour to sew in the ends.
Wrapped it in some cellophane and hey presto a pretty cool looking mothers day present.
