Well.. look at what I just finished..



It's a new scarf. If you look closely, you might recognize the yarn from last weekend's photos of my new yarn purchases. This lace scarf was knitted out of Italian Mohair in an easy lace stitch pattern. The pattern is from the book: Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

I haven't woven the ends in yet- in case you did notice the hanging yarn. I think that this will be a gift for a friend.. now, to just figure out who would want this soft, Italian mohair scarf??? (I made it to be a warm, dressy scarf.)

AND... a co-worker had a baby girl born last week- so, I knitted the baby some little mittens for the Korean cold winter weather.
I think that the color works for a girl, doesn't it? It has turquoise, white and lavender. I just winged knitting the mitts as I went along.

I have one more baby gift to make and then.. I can make something FOR ME!!!

Those mittens are so sweet - such a lucky (and warm) baby girl!

Thank you so much- after you do two of the mittens and the icord.. it does quite a bit of time to make them. However, I think it's going to be my gift of choice from now on..

After all, I've not seen anyplace to buy little mittens for tiny babies and there is a need for that if a baby is born before or during winter.

Thank you again for visiting and commmenting on my blog. :D
