Scrap Knit Scarf
What I love about knitting: I do it in the morning while I watch the Today Show for a little bit while I sip my coffee. During this time, I keep my notebook open because I think of things I need to remember to do during the day, calls to make, errands, deadlines, new writing ideas. Once my mind can't come up with anything else to jot down, I go do something else.
I love the frugality of making handmade gifts. Plus nothing says love like something you made especially for someone.
Now I'm making a scarf for a female. I'm starting to like it so much, it might be for me! I don't have one. I got the pattern from the Vogue Knitting Shawls & Wraps. I'm making the one on the cover. I didn't have any gold silk yarn in my stash, but I have a soft tan sports yarn I'm using. This book is awesome. There is a very pale pink cape I've got my eye on, and a whimsical black ruffled shawl to die for. You might try your library for the book. Ours had it. But now I'll buy it because it's so a keeper.
