My best FO?

Well, my SP9 hostess asked me what my favorite/best FO is. Choosing is a hard process. At first I was thinking my Clapotis, but since everyone has made one of those and it was pretty easy, I decided to stick with something that's a little more unique.

If you've been reading me for more than like four months, you probably remember this:



It's a beaded scarf I made for my grandmother's 85th birthday out of koigu and some bronze beads. She loved it, but probably in that "I'll only wear this for a special occasion" kind of way. I got the pattern from a co-worker at my LYS, who has been using it as a demo to teach classes on beaded knitting.



So yeah. Not hugely technically difficult, but made better by the fact that I know it was loved and well-received. Grandma was like, "Oh, these are my colors! How lovely!" and on and on because she's a talker. :-)

I've said how georgous that is before, I'm sure. I just wanted to say what a good idea that was of your SP hostess to ask. I might tag my SP to tell me her's, even though we're a different group
