I don't always like to work on a deadline for a project as I tend to get stressed instead of relax, but I am happy to say that I managed to get the azalea mesh scarf finished in time for the basket. Whew! The pattern, which I got from Ravelry, was super easy and I used some Lion Brand Cotton Ease from my stash, which made hub happy as well. It is really cute as well and I would recommend it for new knitters that want to do something a little different. The only additional skills needed are knit two together and yarn over. Piece of cake!
