I’ve finished two knitting projects in the past week! Both were supposed to be Christmas presents, but one of them is going to happily stay in my possession this winter. I completely fell in love with the yarn and the lace pattern that I used for one of the scarves, plus it will go perfectly with a jacket that I picked up on sale at the end of the season last year. It also took forever to finish. I have been working on it for the last two months, and it feels good to know that I will get to wear it just as it starts to get colder.
I love wearing things that I have made. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy when I wrap a scarf around my neck or put on a shirt that I poured my love and creativity into. Some people say that fibers become infused with the energies around them, and I sincerely hope that this is true, because if it is, then my crafts should radiate all the joy that goes into my work. I know that I can feel it, and I hope that at least some others will feel it too when they get their lovingly made presents.
Here is my lace scarf that I am so proud of! You can’t really tell in the photo, but the sparkles in the yarn are really strands of gold thread, which adds a nice touch of girly fun to the scarf.
