One last little gift..., 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

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!


  1. Lisa, that scarf does look elegant and fun. One question, and it's just about the photography. (And it could be a duh questions, but here goes). Your photos are so well lit. Are you using anything other than the flash on your camera?

  2. Hi Jennifer,

    Thanks for the comment!

    I always use just natural light in my photographs. We have a sunroom and we live in Boulder, CO (where we get 300 days of sunshine a year)! Natural light is the best because you get the truest color and no weird flash hot spots.

    Lisa, really, you've outdone yourself this time. Fun Fun Fun, and more elegant than the last! Love the photos, that sunroom really pays for itself, doesn't it?
