Prom, and a Scarf...

Well, this last week and a half has been very busy. My son went to prom, which was really a lot to get ready for - even for a boy. I can't imagine what it will be like when my daughter goes for the first time. But it was fun, picking out the right tux for him, flowers for his date... And, I was able to take pictures for him and his friends. We went downtown and got some great shots. I posted a couple more pictures on my photography blog that you can look at.




While waiting for the party bus to take them to the prom, the ice cream man showed up...


And now for the scarf. I actually finished this about month ago but never got around to blogging it. You might remember my sneak peak of it here. I love this pattern from Aesthetic Nest . I have made two other scarfs besides this one, both of them gifts for friends. I used Caron's Simply Soft in gray which makes it a little thicker and warmer. I was actually hoping that I would get some pictures of me wearing it to show you, but it never worked out.



Well, I hope your weekend is relaxing and fun.

  1. What a handsome young man. Its kind of bittersweet watching them head off to prom, isn't it? The scarf turned out great. Now I have to add THAT to my list of stuff to make! :-)

  2. Hi Laura - what a handsome boy your son is and his girlfriend is stunning. They grow up so quickly don't they; one minute they are toddling around and its as if you blink and they have grown. Hope they had a wonderful time. Lily. xxx
