Knitting Heaven

My friend, Kory, is going to a special wedding this month - her son's!  So, dutifully, three of us got together and made a supreme sacrifice.  We sat around one afternoon eating cheese, fruit and chocolate and drinking a little wine while Kory gave us a fashion show of all the dresses that were contenders for her mother-of-the-groom look.  We successfully picked a great dress...but it needed a scarf or jacket to complete the look.  One more sacrifice coming up!  I'd knit if she bought.  So off we went last Saturday to my favorite local yarn haunt, "Yarns, etc",  and picked out these fabulous yarns - 5 of them. 
I love to knit and love an excuse to knit for someone else...especially when the yarn is beautiful and the pattern is easy!  I'll be back later with a photo of the finished scarf.  It has a surprise ending :)
