Since my MIL's favourite colour is green (must be the Irish in her!) I knit her a (mostly) green scarf - again, another pattern from my Little Box of Scarves book, like I did for my SIL. I used up an entire skein of Bernat Wool Blend, the colour: Tan & Sky. I only needed a wee bit of a second skein just to finish the bind-off at the end, but otherwise it came out as a good long scarf. The only adjustment I made (because you know me, I love changing patterns) is I added an extra 7 stitches to make an extra pattern repeat - the original width would've been a bit too narrow.
