I have been so excited to share this recently completed project, but had to keep it under wraps since it was to be a gift. For Mother’s Day, I knit my mom a scarf using Cascade Yarns’ Ultra Pima in China Pink, completely in garter stitch. The yarn has wonderful stitch definition and was great to work with. This was my first time working with this yarn, and the reasons I selected it were: I wanted something lightweight; it is machine washable; the color is gorgeous. My mom is a breast cancer survivor, so when I saw this perfect shade of pink, I knew I had to go for it. I will say, I washed it in the washing machine upon completion and one or two stitches came out. I ran it through the delicate cycle, yet it did not hold up 100%. Needless to say, I was a bit disappointed. Despite that, I still enjoyed working with this yarn and have already purchased more in another color for a “to be determined” project. Next time, I will simply hand wash this yarn.
Without further ado, please enjoy my “Pretty in Pink” Mother’s Day gift:
