Last But Not Least

Maria finished her Special Olympic Scarf just in time for them all to be mailed out. Maria has difficulty with arthritis in her hands and when we were all making our scarves, Maria's doctor told her she needed a little break from knitting.

Maria is back to knitting now but is very careful not to overdo. She made a combo garter stitch and stockinette but felt the edges needed a more finished look. Maria, who barely crochets, put a sc edge down the sides which is difficult for anyone since you really have to go with feel and no real instructions.Then she added a short fringe.
Maria was worried how the scarf would turn out, but it's another great scarf to add to our other 21 scarves that were mailed today.
