Handmade Christmas...

You may remember that last year I was very industrious in making Christmas ornaments for a group of old-school friends. Well, I'm afraid I was a bit of a failure this year and had to resort to purchasing...a combination of delayed inspiration of what to make, and then running out of time to actually make anything.

However, I have still kept some elements of a handmade Christmas alive this year. Earlier in the year I gave my friend C some knitting lessons, so I decided that it would be nice to make her a scarf for her gift.

I toyed with the idea of a chunky wool ribbed scarf, but when I was browsing ideas on Ravelry, I was swayed by the idea of a pretty lace-knit version. I'm popping the finished product in the post on Monday, and I hope she likes it...


  1. What a beautiful scarf Annie! I love the lace-knit! I am sure your friend will love it! :)

  2. What a lovely scarf - I would be extremely happy to receive that should you feel like knitting another one. Do you have the pattern details?
