Smoky Mountain Colors

I have to tell you, I never get tired of seeing the expression on people's faces when you give them something that you have made. It's great. Words can't hardly describe it. Last night I got to experience that wonderful feeling again. I've been working on a scarf for my friend Jan, who is a North Carolina fan. So for her birthday I knitted her a scarf in her college colors. She loved it, and I loved giving it to her. I think though that her husband may steal it. LOL. He had his eye on it too, since he's also a NC grad. Here is a picture of Jan just after she opened her gift.

Jan had mentioned in the past that she is temperature sensitive and gets so cold when she is out and that she hates for her neck to be cold, so I made the scarf double thickness and a little wider so she could stay warm. I think it was a hit.

Knitters have the greatest opportunity to share not just their knitting talent but their heart with those around them through the things they knit. How blessed we are.

Blessed be

Very nice scarf! What a special friend she must be, and lucky to have you as a friend, also.
