Knitting along with Mom

My mom had been admiring the Misty Garden scarf from Scarf Style for a long time, but did not think she was ready for a lacy pattern yet. I took a look at the pattern and saw it was a feather and fan pattern. Definitely doable. I told my mom that I'd make one too and we could have a knit-along. I received 3 skeins of Rowan Tapestry under the tree (thanks, Mom) and the knit-along commenced on Christmas.

Here is mine so far:

And here is my mom's:
This yarn is so beautiful. My mom is annoyed because so far her skein had 3 knots in it and, as you can see from the photo, it changed color to blue abruptly after a knot. For the price of Rowan, you'd expect better. Still, it looks beautiful.

I've never participated in a knit-along before, nor started one, but if anyone wants to join this one, feel free! We haven't made too much progress yet.

Jennifer! Your scarf looks lovely. I needed to put aside mine for a few days to work on those other gift projects. The scarf keeps calling to me,however, so I'll be picking it up again this weekend. Don't get too far ahead of me!

Lovely mother and daughter scarves. Hey, speaking of matching fashions, maybe you need a dickie to match hers?
