My first handmade Christmas present is complete. I knitted a scarf for my brother who is living in London, using the My So Called Scarf pattern. The yarn is Patons Inca, an alpaca, wool and acrylic blend. Despite my earlier reservations about the yarn, I decided to keep using it and I'm pleased that I did. The stitch pattern shows up the varegations in the yarn really well and it is not shedding as much as I thought it would.
I'm planning a "weekend o' sewing", so hopefully I'll have a lot more Christmas crafting to show you next week. Have a great weekend.
