[B]Jan in CA:[/B] Yes I am very glad they are all finished. I should have had this last one done ages ago but the sock bug bit me so I made socks for DH for Valentines Day, I had to finish that shawl for my MIL and I knit a scarf for my FIL.
[B]Debkcs:[/B] These scarves were what my DD requested for Christmas, three weeks before that blessed event. She said they were “easy” and I should have no trouble getting them done for her on time. In fact, they were boring and three other people did not get their Christmas gifts on time because I was knitting those scarfs. Thankfully those people were understanding! I bought the yarn and thought I could finish but got so sick and tired of knitting scarves. I am going to try and get a picture of the other two scarves on Monday.
[B]KnittingNat:[/B] Thanks, this one did turn out nicely. The boucle drapes nicely when done in a ribbing pattern. The only problem is that it does ladder (although I don’t know why) but unless you really know what to look for you would not see the laddering.
[B]Eccie:[/B] My DD was pleased with the other two scarves and wears them “sometimes”, but she is waiting for this white one because it matches the new coat her MIL bought her for Christmas. I hope she is going to like this one because IMHO it is the nicest of the three (also the hardest to knit because for some reason the yarn was laddering).
[B]Pauline:[/B] It’s going to be a good long time before I feel like knitting scarves again.
[B]Sue in Canada:[/B] My DD put in her request the other day (she does not know I am finished the scarf) for a “very plain” large poncho. She said “It’s really plain so it won’t take you long. I’ll go with you and pick out the yarn I want.” I told her “this time you pay for the yarn, the scarf yarn cost me $50 because I knit all the scarfs with boucle”. She agreed! The good news is that the poncho she picked out is knit with very large needles and thick yarn so it really won’t take me long to knit.
Now I have one last Christmas gift to knit and then I am done with that list. I have to knit a bed jacket for my sister using the boucle. I have yarn and pattern here, thankfully, so I can start it as soon as I am finished the Teddy All-In-One (which has been promised to one of our KH members for her new niece who’s arriving in July). By the time I am finished all this my new sock yarn should be here and [B]I AM GOING TO KNIT SOME SOCKS JUST FOR [U]ME[/U]!!![/B]
