While we were at my parents', we had an early Christmas gift exchange. My husband & I typically go down in January after the Christmas rush is over but the weather can be quite tricky to navigate and has been outright dangerous at times. So we are decided to stay home in January and celebrate Christmas with my family in October, sans lighted trees.
We had fun squealing over the delightful boxes and over the contents of them.Well, maybe the men didn't squeal. But the ladies sure did. When we decided in September to have early Christmas gift giving, I had to hustle to knit a couple of planned gifts for my mother and sister. What I made for them is The Gallatin Scarf, which I had previously made for myself and really like to wear. So, for this brief post, I wanted to share pictures of each of them modeling their scarves.
I, again, used Cascade Sunseeker. They seemed quite pleased with the finished results and have worn them already.
And just before I share a short "photo album" of our trip, I wanted to let you know that soon I will be having a yarn give-away here on my blog and the winner will come from the folks leaving comments on that post about the give-away. The yarn will be Cascade 220, 2 unopened skeins and 1 almost full skein. Color to be announced at the time. So keep your eyes open and have fun participating.
Now for a few shots from our trip:
