This means that outside of one or two small items for friends, and some baking, holiday crafting can be pretty much all about me. And since this is my blog, I can deck it out in the traditional, if garish, red and green color scheme for a few weeks.
This week the gift-me in progress is dottie angel's a 'woolly & warm & tres long" scarf.
Bonus points for crochet which is easier on my hands right now. Bonus points for simplicity; it's essentially a one-row pattern. More bonus points for using yarn that I already had: five skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter in shades of green and natural: Button Jar, Foothills, Woodsmoke & Fossil.
