One Down...

... so many to go! Are there really only 30 days left?

I know there will be at least one handmade Christmas gift this year! I finished the Chunky Ribs & Ruffles scarf for someone-who-might-or-might-not-read-my-blog over the weekend.

I love this scarf.... just long enough, with just enough style and oooh sooo soft! For this one I used Lamb's Pride bulky. When I made the same scarf for myself a couple of years ago I used Misti Chunky Alpaca and it is still one of my favorites.

So when I finished the scarf, one might've guessed that I cast on another Christmas gift, right? Um, yeah... not so much. I worked on my alpaca mitts...

For those of you who aren't on Ravlery and couldn't click the link above, the lighter color is alpaca silk and the darker is "first shearing" alpaca, both from a local alpaca farm. I'm holding the darker yarn double and must say, as I've reached the thumb gusset increases, its rather difficult to see. These might not be the best late-night knitting... but I can't wait to finish them because they are soooooooooo soft!

Now to cast on something for Emma for Christmas...
