I almost forgot to share another homemade Christmas present. In addition to the socks and the fingerless gloves, I made a scarf for my Aunt Anita.
It was a little tricky because she's allergic to wool and acrylic so I used Lion's Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton which worked even better then I had anticipated. I love the way the pattern came out after I blocked it.
The pattern is Saroyan scarf available on ravelry if you'd like to make one of your own.
