...is...well, almost done! Yay! Yippee! Woot! The LAST 2006 Christmas gift! Alright. Maybe I'm prematurely celebrating here. But - sheesh...I never thought it would end!
Wanna see the last gift? It's in progress...but oh so exciting...
I think I saved the prettiest for last. This scarf is for my Aunt who's hosting a Christmas Eve family party at her house. This Aunt ogled a scarf a gave as a gift at that family party last year. So as a thank you for hosting I thought it would be fun to give her one this year. Since these Power Scarves are a snap to make, I bought some fancy schmancy yarn and went to work this morning. Of course, it being a Blizzard (with a capitol "B"!) outside - working on finishing up gifts is a perfect activity.
A little bit O' facts about the scarf:
Yarn: Berroco "Optik" in color "Millefleur"
Yardage: 1 skein or 87 yards
Loom: Green round Knifty Knitter loom
Pattern: Power Scarf from LoomKnittingDesigns.com
I took a few more closeups of the beautiful yarn. It's a great yarn that uses many colors, kinds, and textures of fibers all wrapped together. The effect when made is a sparkly, textured, and colorful fabric. Great for this pattern cause it has such an open laciness. At about $10 a skein it's a bit pricey but it's very pretty and, I think, worth the money. Makes a great one skein gift!
