Pretty in Pink

Several years ago when I graduated from college, I went on a tour through Europe.  I stopped in on my Mormor (Grandma for those of you who don’t speak Danish) while I was there, and bestowed this upon her:

When visiting her again during our honeymoon (yes, the Blanket Thief is awesome enough that he let us spend the first few days of our honeymoon visiting my Mormor and not partaking of, erm, honeymoon-ly activities), I noticed that she still has this scarf, and she actually uses it whenever it’s cold (which it apparently was quite often this winter).

Of course, I completely forgot to take pictures of it when I saw it again, just like I apparently forgot to take pictures of it the first time when I gave it to her.  In fact, it seems like the only pictures I have of it are from when it was blocking.

I think I actually followed a pattern for this one, and I thought that pattern was from Knitty, but I can’t seem to find it in their patterns section.  I remember that I used alpaca yarn (possibly even Frog Tree), but I don’t remember what the name of the pattern was at all.  Did it have “leaves” in the title?  Maybe “branches”?  I may never find out.

Maybe I should call it Lethe, for it has made me forget everything about it.  At least it seems to have had no effect on my Mormor, who is luckily as sharp and spry as ever.
