I present to you, Anne's Scarf., This is a project I started on last fall, with no clear recipient in mind. I just needed a relatively mindless project, that wasn't socks, to use up some of my scraps of sock yarn. The result was this colorful scarf, shawlette hybrid do-hickey. As I progressed on it, I knew it was going to be a gift for my dear friend Anne. She has been a great friend and a wonderful colleague. Plus she is the Goddess of Cleaning and Organizing. However, despite her long admiring my knitting, I have never gifted her any. This was an oversight that SORELY needed remedying.
Monday Anne had a birthday bash (I need to continue the tradition of attending a party the night before classes start), and so I finished up the scarf, took it's portrait and was going to wrap it, and then realized, I don't have any wrapping paper. So I thought long and hard about what I could possible use for wrapping paper, and the only thing I could think of was a plastic grocery bag. Ugh..but desperate times, right? Luckily, I found a brown paper bag, used to wrap wine in at the grocery store. Since this was a slight step above a plastic bag, I went for it.

She seemed to like it anyway.
