Gah.

I'm freaking out, would appreciate some insight. Suddenly plagued with self-doubt over a pattern I have put a lot of love into:

I have a great-aunt who lives in Brighton, England. She is dying of cancer. I can't visit, so I decided to knit her something; I know she is lonely and thought she would appreciate the gesture. So I got some absolutely gorgeous sock yarn and started to knit the Easy Lace Scarf.

But now -- I don't know! Is a lace scarf an appropriate gift? Will it be wearable in Brighton (well, Seaford, technically) in a month's time? Is there something I don't know about cancer patients -- will 80wool/20nylon blend irritate?
