Bulky Waffle Stitch Hats

I made a huge dent in my Christmas gift list this week…

I entered these hats into a hat KAL and a Christmas gift KAL

I hope that you are all having a great week. I’ve been trying to get my Christmas gifts finished so that I can concentrate on my first craft sale in November. It’s hosted by my Great Aunt & Uncle so it should be a really fun time and an educational first step into the craft sale world.

I hope that you all have a great weekend. ❤ Missy

Cowls/Scarves, Handmade Gifts

Diane’s Diagonal Scarf

The last time I was in Wal-Mart I found myself in the craft department – go figure right!?!? Well the earth/fall tones in the yarn just screamed “buy me buy me” and I couldn’t resist. I was surprised when I found the pink and blue stripes in the middle of the skein of yarn. This is one of the coziest and densest scarves that I have ever knit. I wish that I had purchased more and I would have but this was the only one in the store.

One more gift knocked off my Christmas list. I am hoping to have my Christmas knitting done by Halloween.
