Today I introduce a new pattern that’s very close to my heart: The Barbara, Ruth and Leona Scarves. This is a pattern for three easy pretty lace scarves, written for dk or sport weight yarn. They’re a great introduction to lace knitting with easily-memorized patterns and make great gifts for moms, sisters, friends, teachers.
Also, 100% of proceeds from the sale of this pattern go to the Michael J Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research. Barbara, Ruth and Leona were three fabulous moms who suffered from Parkinson’s Disease. Barbara was my mom. Here’s a random picture of her and my dad, from a million years ago. I love that it’s a little blurry and how huge a grin she has.
Make a scarf for your mom or for the mom of a friend or for yourself or your sister or your daughter or your best friend! And know you’re doing good while you’re having fun knitting!
