Finished Gifts

Yesterday I finished My So Called Scarf for my MIL's birthday which is next week. I need to send it priority this week so it will get there on time.

I also finished Hedgerow Socks for my mom which I gave to her today for her birthday.

I had her try on her Wickedly Foolish cardigan and I'm really bummed because it isn't wide enough. It is okay at the bust but I need to add about 4 more inches around the stomach and lengthen it by another 4 inches. So I'm going to have to rip out a ton of rows. I have no idea if I'll get it done for Xmas now.

I just can't face the ripping and reknitting right now. So I startd the Hoodie Scarf to take my mind off it. I'm using Cascade 220 in Maroon. I wanted a smallish project that I can carry with me and knit at knitting group.

Ooh, I love the MSCS! What yarn is that? It looks so soft! I'm impressed that you are giving knit birthday gifts in December with Christmas so close!

I used Malibrigo Worsted. The color is Pagoda (I think). It is a very soft and cushy scarf. My MIL is in Texas so I don't know how much use she'll get out of it. But it is pretty.

The only Xmas knitting is my Mom's cardigan which I doubt I'll finish!
