A Little "Just Because" Present

This past summer my mother said how much she used the scarf I made for her 2 years ago. My parents live in Florida but they are right on the frost line and it can get chilly there sometimes. So I promptly started the Firefly Scarf for her and gave that to her in early November.

When I saw some Skacel Merino Lace on sale I purchased a skein and cast on for Citron. I finished this on took me about a month of inconsistent knitting. It is a fun pattern and you really need to trust in the magic of blocking as it really looks so much better after blocking.

I mailed it off yesterday and told my mom to open it up as it isn't a Christmas present - it is a "just because" present...just because she asked for a handknit item and just because I love her.
