I finished my third and final Ma present,
which is more colorful in RL. I also made her a small afghan, shared earlier, and a pair of mitts to match. All of these things were crocheted, because at 95 she is cold all the time, and needs volume, volume, volume with the presents. Crochet is faster.
This shawl is made out of Red Heart Unforgettable, which is nice and warm and soft - and unforgettable in the wrong way. It lives to split. I hadn't known singles yarn split. It is silky and has a halo, somewhat like unbrushed mohair, and I wanted to use a luxurious yarn that would not give the tender skin of an old person a rash.
I am knitting a friend a scarf and hope to finish soon. Three down and one to go.
