Christmas is near and it finds some of us scrambling!

Did you know, I've been sharing lots of gift ideas over on the blog Facebook page? Give me a like and see more every day!


Here are a few of my favorites! Enjoy! >>TWEET THIS<<

1.
Double Braided Scarf Tutorial
from Put Up Your Dukes


2.
Arm Knit Scarf & Cowl

Here are two I've made. In the red and gray one, I added a bit of sparkle by
tying metallic embroidery thread onto the yarn.
For the cowl I used two skeins of chunky yarn and
doubled the yarn as I worked it. The result,
a  very thick, comfy cowl!

Takes me half an hour, and I'm a beginner!
