Last day of break and a little knitting

Well today is the last day of break, tomorrow is back to school/work. I don't think we are ready to go back. We went out to eat and did a little shopping for our last day off. It is a long time until Spring Break!
 I have been doing some knitting, no I am not an expert by any means. I mostly make scarves and wraps, simple things. I got the notion to make my mom a wrap for Christmas. I made her a different style several years ago. She loves it and wears it to church a lot and get lots of compliments. Here is the one I made this year. She came over today to pick it up, I had to add the fringe and make the polymer button. So here is my 88 year old mother modeling her wrap. Doesn't she look cute? I keep her in jewlery and styling things to wear. She is a peach! One of my goals this year is to learn to read a knitting pattern and make something a little more complex. Enjoy

Hugs to all!

Oh, I love the wrap you made your Mother! She will get tons of compliments on it. I'm a self taught knitter too and have trouble reading patterns sometimes. I'm a hat and scarf crafter - only - started a sweater once, and it didn't get finished, and years later used the yarn for a scarf! way to go huh!? ! Have a great week, Jo in MN

Aww, it is pretty and she looks pretty with it on. I can't knit, but dabble in crochet. That's so nice you are able to make your grandma gifts.
