I decided it was my turn to get a gift from me … and, of course, I got distracted making gifts for someone else. 🙂
My hat was made with the same basic pattern but it was only one strand of yarn (and it was thin-ish … still can’t just look at yarn that doesn’t have a label and know what it is). It’s too long but at least it’s not too short! I also discovered a new to me stitch (puff stitch), so that is around the edge. I like it … still look like a weeble but my head will be warm!
My scarf, as you can see, is a work in progress but I wanted to share this pattern with you (before I post the pictures of my latest gifts). I just love it! It helps that I love the colors in the yarn, too, but I really love the way the pattern looks. I DO have to pay more attention because a small mistake can mess up the progress of the scarf (hence why this has been torn out three times already).
Here’s a link to the pattern (I’m using the same size hook and I think yarn but it still doesn’t quite feel long enough to me):
I won’t post the pictures/patterns of my latest gifts until they arrive (being sent to Arizona as soon as I’m done) so, maybe a week? Now to finish up my scarf, make another hat for my adopted son, then take pictures of that one, plus the other three I made. 🙂
