Was This A Gift For Me?

Happy Thursday Everyone! it's partly sunny (if you're an optimist) or partly cloudy (if you're a pessimist). The temperature is hovering around the freezing mark and I doubt it will get any warmer as the day goes on. When my granddaughter was out Christmas shopping she bought me a few skeins of yarn she thought I would like. I was so excited because she was right...it was a very pretty ombre in grays and blues. The other day she asked me if I had decided what to make with the yarn she gave me. I didn't have anything specific in mind and she said it would make a beautiful scarf. (hint hint) She is going back to college in a few weeks and asked if I would consider using it to make her a scarf. Although she lives off campus she still has a bit of a distance to walk to her classes and probably could use a nice warm scarf for those walks. I'm going to start it today and she'll have it when she goes back. She's just too funny and I should have known there was an ulterior motive when she brought me yarn that she liked and picked out. So she bought me a gift that winds up being a gift for her!! I really love that kid but she can't fool this old grandma.

The yarn is an ombre in blues and grays. It should look really pretty when it's done. I like ombre yarn because it has subtle changes in the colors and you don't have to stop one color and change to another if you use just solid color yarn.

I think it is sweet you'll make her a scarf with the yarn she bought for you at Christmastime.

That is a compliment, her great taste in the yarn and your terrific work as a knitter, how could she go wrong?- And she probably wants something to remind her of you when she is far from home.

At least she was well-intentioned and your don't mind doing that for her. I used to enjoy crocheting but now my thumb joints would scream at me if I tried. Maybe once I quit working I can consider it again
