Usually, I'm the one who knits and/or crochets gifts for EVERYONE!!! It's so nice to receive a gift knitted especially for ME. I so appreciate it! Thanks to the lovely Madgik and to the talented Ellene for gifting me with beautifully hand-knit, hand-crocheted holiday gifts.
Just before Christmas, while getting my knit-on with the Eastside Montrose Monday KnitGrrls, Ms. Madge gifted me with this beautiful scarf! I just LOVE the colors, the pattern and how nicely blocked it is. This color just happens to perfectly match a pair of glasses that I wear often. How stylin'...thanks again Madge. You must illuminate the reading public on the pattern....I know you told me where you found it, but I was so excited to receive a hand-knit gift that I forgot.
Madge's Pumpkin-Lite Scarf
Just after Christmas, Ellene and I were having lunch at Surfas at the edge of Culver City and traded holiday gifts. Ellene knitted and crocheted these beautiful wristwarmers for me. She's publishing the pattern and packaging it with yarn for a kit. You can read about a similar version of the wristwarmers here. I've been wearing these non-stop since I received them!
