Gifted Scarf

Before I discovered Etsy, I made gifts for my friends and family all the time. After Etsy, I pretty much didn't. I want to be better about that in 2010, so I started by making this beautiful scarf for my mother as a Christmas gift.

I'm pretty sure this is the most beautiful yarn I've ever laid eyes on. It is hand-tied by Turkish women whose husbands are unemployed. There are SO many different fibers used and specialty textures included.

And here's the finishing fringe.

I could marry this yarn- or at least work with it all day every day.
Maybe when I win the lottery!

That's only half the story! The colors and textures in person are not to be believed! From a downy cream to the softest peach, a bare aqua, a puff of pink, and a hint of buttercup all entwined with threads of silver and gold...more beautiful than you can imagine!! I am honored to be the recipient of this most unique scarf! A true and rare "one of a kind" treasure! Thank You So Much!!!

Gorgeous! Where did you find that wonderful yarn? I'm sure my mom would love some. :)

I still make people gifts, even after Etsy. It's actually less expensive for me than buying them something, lol.
