Malabrigo Quickie

I love Malabrigo Lace with a strong passion that is perhaps a little odd (although probably not to any of you).

A quick lace scarf was in order for a good friend this holiday. Two thirds of a skein of Malabrigo Lace in emerald blue was begging to be used, so I decided on the lovely drop stitch scarf I have used before.

Just blocked it today, and I am very pleased with it. I think my friend will be as well!

Quick Gifts

At this time of year it is all about the quick knitting!

I managed to get both of these sets out of one skein of Asland Trends Bariloche - beautiful yarn.
Both sets knit up in a day.

I've got more of this yarn in a different colourway to make a big scarf for me ... but it will have to wait as there is more holiday knitting to do.

How is your holiday crafting going?
