I bought some really nice colorful yarn with hopes of finding a design for a scarf and gloves, a Christmas gift. It was light weight and the colors are perfect for my grand daughter.
It has purple! Eve lives in Juneau and it is cold and snowy up there, so what better gifts than warm knits. And, I'm so enjoying making her many different items.
I have such trouble reading knitting patteren's and gloves have not been my strong suite, so I bought a simple pair of gloves.. you know the ones you can find that look like a child's but stretch to fit any size. These were all of a dollar in JoAnns. I chose a blue color to contrast with the colors in the yarn.
Using my crochet hook I popped a hole for each stitch around the wrist and created a fringe of sorts to go with the scarf. Once the scarf was finished I added the same loopy element down the lower edge. Different?
As for the scarf, the way I knitted it created a wavy design. It does not hang straight but has a swivel look and it's long, and can be wrapped around the neck several times.
At the moment I'm working on a Hat and fingerless glove set for her mom, my daughter-in-law.
Don't you just love the colors and feel of today's yarns. We have so much to choose from.
