Rather than beginning my post with apologies or explanations for disappearing from the blogging world, I’m going to jump right in and bring this baby back to life! I think a giveaway is the perfect way to celebrate, don’t you??
Since I’ve been ‘gone’, I have learned how to knit and am really enjoying making scarves for family and friends. I’ve discovered the joys of really luxurious yarn, the fun of trying different types of needles, the friendship of my local knitting group and the satisfaction that comes with completing a knitting project.
I’ll start with sharing photos and then get to the fun of the giveaway!
This is Elliott’s scarf. When she saw me knitting scarves for gifts, she decided she needed one, too. This bamboo yarn is so pretty and soft that I cranked this baby out in just a couple of hours.
This next was started out to be a scarf for yours truly, but I quickly discovered that I hadn’t ordered nearly enough yarn, so it was turned into a shrug for my girl.
This blue one is for my step-daughter. She hasn’t seen it yet, but I hope she’ll love it. When I found that blue yarn, I knew it had to be hers. (Elliott had to model it. 😉 )
And then there is my true love that I finished this morning. This yarn just couldn’t be more ‘me’ if it tried.
Would you like a scarf? Would ya? Are you sure?
I’m giving away a very simple but lovely wool scarf in fun fall colors! It can be yours!
