Ta Da!!!

I have wanted (and promised) to make a pretty scarf for my boss for quite some time.

Over the past 18 months, I have bought enough yarn and found enough patterns for probably 10 skeins - but it wasn't 'til I found (and adulterated) a Lion Brand Reversible Cable pattern - and used the wonderful Berroco Ultra Alpaca yarn - that I finally made one that I thought she'd like.

It turned out gorgeous!! I was proud of it!

Merry Christmas, Lori!

I made it!! After a three class session on making socks on 2 circs with the Knitting Fairy, I am proud to say I have made my first pair of socks!! (Used Regia Crazy Colors - great yarn for first socks...not too bulky and not too thin!)

I loved it! They will not be the last ones...

I can't decide whether to keep them or gift them - if I gift them, they will go to someone who will truly appreciate them!!
