As I am retired and on a meager fixed retirement income I am forced to make my presents this year(I like that though). I am now making a Irish hooded scarf with pockets for my wife. Color is a Denim Heather.
Knitting gifts *can* be expensive - but face it, they do double or triple duty - entertainment and occupying your time - and THEN as a gift...
This is looking great. I'm in the same boat as you and am making hand knit gifts as well.
Beautiful so far! A hooded scarf with pockets... Never heard of anything like it. Can't wait to see the final thing.
That is a nice looking pattern. I think handmade gifts are wonderful. I just hope that your family and friends appreciate the amount of love and time you put into knitting them. Most do.
I've always wanted to make one of those. Which pattern are you using?
Try this link It is the one I am using. A lot of new stiches for me, learning alot. Doing things I ahave never done before. Hope it owrks for you. Enjoy! If you can't get the link to work let me know i'll try something else.
Thanks!!! I really like it! It's going in my queue.
