While I had a lovely birthday celebration of my 45th birthday last week, it was also my older sister's birthday on Monday 9/12. We had a terrific sister day, with breakfast, facials, and lots of fun shopping together.
And I gave her a knitted gift that I really truly intended to finish in time for her birthday LAST year, but just didn't get it done.
I made a black mohair scarf blended with shiny neon accent colors, which is just right for her. And it's finally finished!

Photographed on August 28, 2010 - about halfway done - two weeks of knitting time left before the birthday deadline:

This yarn is hard to photograph because of the shiny neon accent yard mixed with the fuzzy black mohair:
And a year later - finally finished!
The day between my sister's birthday and mine was a stormy rainy day, ending with this beautiful double rainbow over Eldorado Canyon that really looks like it ends in my yard:
