My husband’s grandfather just turned 90! We went to a big party last weekend in Milwaukee at the Polish Center to celebrate the event and had lots of fun. It was so great to see and catch up with family.
I really enjoy making gifts for people and when my mother-in-law told me he could use a nice, soft scarf to go with his black wool coat I knew just what to make. I’ve had this pattern for a while. It’s from “Last-Minute Knitted Gifts” by Joelle Hoverson. I used the corrected book version that can be found here. It was an easy, quick knit since it uses size 11 needles. The scarf made in the book used cashmere, but baby alpaca is a great (much less expensive) substitute.
While in Milwaukee, we also got a chance to go to the public museum. It was great. The kids loved the dinosaurs and shells!
