I made her a Falling Water scarf using 2 skeins, shown here blocking:
And to go with it, a pair of Nalu Mitts in the same shade. I used pretty much an entire skein for these.
Here's the Ravelry page for this pattern, since this is the type of pattern you instantly fall in love with and I want you to be able to find it as soon as possible :) . I could hardly bear to give them away! I think I am going to have to make a pair for myself.
I hope they will help to keep my mam warm in the Scottish Highlands. Well, they will add another layer, at least!
