First up is Lisa's gift! She was the first person to receive one of my handmade gifts. Lisa came over on Friday for our 2nd Annual Christmas Cookie Baking event and it was no time like the present to give her my gift. I chose to knit her the Ruffles Scarf and a Basic Hat jazzed up with some sequins. The scarf was done in Classic Cotton (3 skeins) and the hat was done in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino (Little over 1 skein) and Berroco FX (half of skein). This was the first gift I knitted way back in August. I must say, Lisa was thrilled with the gift!
Next up is Shameka's gift. I surprised her at lunch today. She too received a Ruffles Scarf and a Basic Hat without the sparkles (She already has a hat like that one). I used Berroco Touche (Fushia - 4 skeins) for the scarf and a little over 1 skein for the hat. Now I bought this yarn in August while I was vacationing in South Carolina but these two items didn't get done until just recently. Of course, any of ya'll who know Shameka knows that she loved the color choice for her gift!
Stay tuned to more Christmas gifts revealed. I have a few more surprises in store before I get on that plane Friday morning!
