Christmas Gifts


I've decided to start working on some Christmas gifts early this year. I had high hopes last year but started too late. I guess I learned my lesson. I've started by making a few scarves. I love the black with gold accents. It's quite elegant but so easy to make! I'm planning on giving this to one of my childhood friends.

 
The colors came out a bit too bright on this one. It is purple but not quite as vibrant. I'm hoping to give this scarf to my friend's college age daughter. I love how popular scarves have become. If you're thinking of making one, Jo-Ann's has a ton of new ruffled yarn. They're even in Christmas colors! I may have to buy a few more. These are always great to have in your stash. They can be made in as little as an afternoon.
 

While I've been busily knitting on the couch, Lily has been watching me and taking her usual cat naps! What a life!!

  1. Yes, I also talk about Christmas gifts every year but never start early enough to actually finish anything by Christmas. The scarves are a great idea.

  2. Wow, you whipped one of those up in an afternoon? Must have been something very good on TV. :-)
    I've been thinking Christmas myself today, not because I'm creating gifts but because I am preparing fabrics for a Christmas table topper.
