This is the scarf from the pattern "A Touch of Lace" scarfs. I love it!!!! The yarn I used I brought at Tuesday Morning. Went to two stores near my home and brought up every skein. It is Laines Du Nord Cashsilk, 67 yrs, I used 4 Skeins until I ran out.Great for a beginner lace person, like me. Working with this weight of yarn help so much. It is just the softest thing to wear. The color is more like a combo of light mauve/peachy. Try this one you will like it. It was my gift to my BFF of 39 yrs. I also gave her a huge bag hair products from our Upscale salons. Prive and too many to remember. Also included was hair brushes. I made smaller bags for her two Daughters.
Detail Plus the fingerless gloves to match
My BFF, gave me THIS! A Dooney & Bourke hand bag. I look at these and Coach but they are out of my confort price limit. It will put away for special occasions
Here is the bag shown with my wallet. That is all that would fit into it.
She also gave me this book, that was on my wish list. Knitting from Cuff to Cuff.
This scarf is going to my Sister in New York. I started with elsebeth lavold Silky Cashmere Color Wine (another Tuesday Morning find, brought up all those too!) It is actually on the list as the 2nd thing I made for 2009
I received gift cards for Traders Joe, Barnes and Noble. L daughter #two gave me this calendar that I keep at work. I have to say I've had this calendar for 2007 & last year and was very disappointed with 2008 because they would include a pattern that would take three days. I want one for each day. This is the last year I am getting this calendar. I would look at the Stitch of Day or even the Yarn Harlot's new and 1st one.
I am leaving to day for the Knitting Retreat at the Lake. I'll be back Sunday and post more next week.
