Holiday Treats



Made these mitts (Knitty's Fetching)a bit earlier and finally finished the neckwarmer to go with it. This will be a gift for someone who worked with me on a project earlier this fall. Have to send it out shortly. Altogether, the set used nearly two skeins of Rowan's Tapestry. I'd had too much leftover from the one skein after doing the mitts, and picking up a second skein wasn't actually enough for a hearty scarf after all. Hence the slit for passing through the scarf end. Added on the ruffle as a means of giving the ends more body. Keeps it from being too matchy-matchy a set.

I love the tapestry yarn and the little ruffle on the scarf - so cute!

Ooh, so gorgeous! What was your gauge on these most fetching Fetching? And what sized needles did you use?

our scarf is stunning, and the slit and ruffle are brilliant!
