Firefly Fringed Scarf (or shawl)

This is a VERY easy, VERY quick knit. Highly recommended if you need/want to make something and are out of time!

mediaeval nightcap/indoor cap

Baby Alpaca Vest

Hi guys
My recent project. I love it. Vest in Baby Alpaca DK. I used a basic pattern from Phildar and resized it and added a houndstooth pattern to the front piece.
