I know my Mom doesn't use a computer so there is no chance she will see this picture of the scarf I am knitting for her birthday in December. This is the novelty yarn from KnittingFever called Sparkle, and it's right up her alley: purple with bling!
I've told my knitting buddies to remind me next time I consider knitting with novelty yarn how much I HATE it! Give me natural fibers any day: wool, alpaca, even cotton! I find the novelty yarns tedious to work with, and I don't care for the fabric that they make, although this scarf is not at all scratchy or stiff, even with the sparkle fiber. But saying all that, my Mom will love this scarf , I'm sure, and I guess that's what it's all about.
