Reddy Scarf (Real Easy, Quick and Soft)By Berta Gilholm
Intro: This scarf came about from the leftover red yarn I made the Red Button Hat out of. The hat and scarf were a gift for my sister, who went on dialysis and was telling me how cold it was in the medical center where she received treatments in January. Of course I also gave her an afghan I had made and some magazines. She's doing great now and is learning to do her own dialysis at home. It did my heart good when she said that, this was the first time anyone made something special for only her. I'm so proud of her; she raised three children, lost her youngest to liver disease and her husband to cancer. She deserved the gifts, don't you think...
