Here are the scarves she completed since taking the beginners' knitting class a couple of months ago. The first one, with the most mistakes, belongs to Momcat. All the others are gifts and were made from the "Ribbed for Her Pleasure" pattern out of the Stitch 'n Bitch book. The first two pictures were posted on the blog before.
(Daughter-in-law Niki's scarf. She picked out the yarn herself. Strawberry Smoothie.)
(Basic heather gray scarf)
(Neck warmer made from Kaffe Fasset yarn.)
(Kim's scarf. She loves it with her black coat.)
Momcat has a little bit of arthritis in her right hand. I think it's from years of doing cross-stitch and needlepoint. Knitting for several hours a day really made it flare up. There are several varieties of therapeutic gloves on the market so that's a purchase that needs to be made. If any of you own a particular pair that you recommend I'd love to hear from you.
In the meantime, we'll head to the sewing machine for awhile to give that hand a rest.
