This is the yarn I bought as a pick me up when we were in Toronto for my dad's funeral. Our visit was filled with arrangements and questions and packing his hotel room and I needed to get away. So while the rest of my family went to the police station to gather my dad's things, I ran away to Lettuce Knit and stared blankly at all the yarn-y goodness for the better part of an hour.

I immediately cast on for this scarf thinking of my step mom (the one married to my mom, not the one married to my dad). I burned through the first half and then put it down until the beginning of February. My step mom's birthday is coming up and I was trying to decide what to knit for her when I remembered this and picked it up again.

I think she'll like it.
