It just wouldn't be two days before Christmas without some last minute knitting, right? I've got one complicated hat to finish and some socks to darn (Dad has a big pile of socks with holes that he just wants mended...I've been putting it off forever!). And maybe a wee pair of Toasties if time permits for Lil' Snowboarder.
But here are two that are done.
Why yes. Those are another pair of Plucky Knitter's Cashmere Toasties. A gift for Snowboarder's sister. If you need a quick last-minute gift, this pair was knit up quickly on Monday. You can do it.
Now this gorgeous scarf. Don't be fooled. It will take forever to knit. Forever. Not a last-minute gift. I knew the only way this was going to be finished was if I made it a Christmas gift. I needed a deadline.
To be honest, it may have taken so long because about 50% of it was knit while I practiced lever knitting. The last 20% I was worried I was going too slow and just finished it the way I normally knit.
The pattern is the Gathered Scarf. The yarn is BMFA Peru and is sooooo lovely in the Rose Quartz colorway. One skein of gorgeousness. I was inspired by Maria's version here. I think Snowboarder's mom is going to love this.
Okay. Now to knit that boyfriend a Koolhaas.
