Scarves and Cowls and Chairs, Oh My!

Ok, I really don't have anything to say about chairs. But I have been knitting up a storm! I'm having so much fun with bulky yarn!! All the ladies in my family will be receiving knit gifts this Christmas (I hope they like them!). I believe most presents I give this year will be handmade. [I'm a preschool teacher...money is tight.] What better way to show I care than to spend countless hours creating gifts I can only hope will be appreciated?

I made this yin yang scarf for my mother-in-law, then moved onto bulkier weight yarn. I used this pattern to make my sister's gift (in the fisherman color *love*). I amended the pattern to make a couple more gifts. These have taken me a quarter of the time to complete! Especially as I've been practicing :) Oh, I'm in love with bulky yarn. And such gorgeous fall colors! This morning I completed a mobius scarf for my sister-in-law. It was kind of a stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. So pretty!! I can't wait to give it to her :) I'll definitely be making another for my Etsy shop.

Speaking of which, I did list a new cowl on Etsy this morning. Here are some photos!
