Christmas Knitting


No, I'm not trying to wish the summer away - believe me! But summer is when I usually get most of my Christmas knitting done, and I haven't even started yet....so the banner on top of my blog is to remind me to get going! If you are my friend on Ravelry and you checked your friend's queues this morning, you might have noticed that I added a lot of scarf patterns to my queue - too many too choose from! But I'm going to try starting with this Celtic Cable Scarf by Vanessa Lewis. I'm making it in a vintage Irish Fisherman's wool in a natural off-white color, which was given to me by a friend. I say try because it is a pretty complicated pattern - at least for me because it requires concentration! I won't say who I'm making it for because she just may be reading my blog (and I just may have to frog it!).
