Mary Ann is one of the few people in my circle of loved ones who haven't received a hand-crocheted gift from me yet. It isn't because she isn't dear to me (she is). It is because she is such an amazing knitter. I know that nothing I can make for her will be as nice as what she could make for herself. Also, I know she prefers the look of knitted items over crochet, and I don't know how to knit. Hopefully she likes this scarf. I had started to make a green pineapple shawl for her in December, but then I found out that she doesn't like that shade of green. Oh well, I'll try again.
