All About Christmas Scarf




Hello friends and Merry Christmas! the holiday season is quickly approaching. I happen to quite enjoy this time of the year, with the gathering of family and loved ones, spending time with the little ones, and exchanging gifts.

My first Christmas project this year is actually old. I've started making it in the summer, but then I forgot about it for months. I finally got to finishing it a week ago. It's simple to make, even if it doesn't seem so. Just follow the instructions and it should be a smooth sailing. 


Stay tuned for my next Christmas project, which will be posted 
hopefully soon.

And if you are interested, the guys at yarncanada.ca are having their 2nd Annual event of giving yarn to individuals and groups who knit or crochet for good causes.
In partnership with Bernat & Patons Yarn they are giving away $2000 worth of yarn and are hoping to get as many applicants as possible to ensure it goes to whoever it will have the maximum impact.
