2 scarves

Yes, it's taken me a little longer than I expected to get some new pictures posted. any photo for a closer look...

I made this scarf for one of my knitting friends, Ann. My knitting group did a scarf exchange last year (2008) at the holidays. We each knit a scarf of our own choosing. We packed them up in identical gift bags and then randomly selected a bag at our holiday lunch. I had to borrow this back from Ann to get photos because I forgot to take them before I gave the scarf away.

Yarn: Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool (2 skeins)

K's teacher has made such a huge impact on K this year. K was in a Christmas musical at our church and her teacher came out to see her in it. K was very excited! I decided that K's teacher deserved a little sometime extra. I made her a scarf. I customized it by knitting her initials in lace at both ends. K wanted the scarf to have flowers so the main body of the scarf is made up of lace flowers. Since every flower needs some leaves I used a lace leaf border with faggotting to edge the whole scarf. The knitting was fun and K was happy with it. I hope her teacher enjoys wearing it in good health! Thanks Mrs. G!
The ends hanging from the corner of the scarf are attached to the hang tag I attached to the scarf. The pictures of the outside and inside of the hang tag are a little blurry, sorry!

Yarn: Misti Alpaca Lace (1 skein + a little)
