|Gift set for my coworker, Mrs. W.|
Scarf Pattern: Wakefield Scarf (Click HERE for link)
Hat Pattern: Lace Edged Women's Hat (Click HERE for link)
Yarn: Kollage Yarns Temptation
Mrs. W a quick message. Here is how the conversation went:
ME: "You know... this should be a no-stress zone... how about we exchange New Year's gifts?"
MRS. W.: "Sounds like a plan! That's a load off!!!!"
ME: "I am so glad we are friends!"
MRS. W.: "Me too!"
Phew, what a load off! So I sat down yesterday and finished the scarf and put it on the blocking mats. I noticed I had at least 1 1/2 hanks of this spendy yarn left and I hated the notion of it going to waste. I got on Ravelry, typed in "Kollage Temptation" and, wouldn't you know, there was the Lace Edged Women's hat I made awhile back completed in "Kollage Temptation". I cast on right away and got it done last night. Happy New Year! Both are nice patterns. If I could do one thing differently, with the scarf, I'd add a border of two or three stitches in garter stitch so the edges of the scarf had a nicer finished look. I saw on Ravelry where someone had done that and it looked much nicer.
