WOYWW 134

Thanks in large part to Julia, I was able to say, good enough albeit ten minutes before we were due at my sister's Christmas eve lol. And here is the one project (a scarf)I thought I had finished in October, except when I went to wrap it I saw I forgot to sew in the ends. I couldn't bear to go out in holiday traffic on Christmas eve to the store to buy needles large enough, so it came home with me to be actually finished. In person, one can see the lacy pattern. It's also handspun yarn. I should mention that I am one of the world's slowest knitters so the fact it became actually long enough to be a scarf is something which tickles me pink!

So now it's the daunting task of putting my craft room back in order. It was a good Christmas, with quality time spent with family and my daughter made me some lovely presents.

If you are wondering what this WOYWW is all about, head over to Julia's Stamping Ground and have a gander. Better yet, take a picture of your workdesk and join in :D.

It is always a wonderful feeling to have completed a project. To be able to make it long enough to be called a scarf is wonderful. All the best for 2012.

Lovely colour of yarn.
Don't worry about being a slow knitter; you'll get there one day. That's what I say about my scrapbooking! :)

Happy New Year!

Congrats on using knitting needles - I can only knit on looms! And a scarf always takes an eternity as they're so very very long ...! Yours looks lovely! Have a great New Year! x

It would seem that all of us have taken a bit of a break from crafting in between the holidays.

Your scarf is lovely, by the way!


Happy WOYWW and Happy New Year!

I love the weave of that scarf (or I should say the knit of it). Thanks for sharing your project!

Your scarf looks so nice. I can see a hint of the laciness (is that a word?) of it. The color is great too!!

May 2012 be a year full of craftiness!!!
