The Craft Goes On

One Christmas gift is complete! I finished the scarf, using Misti Alpaca Lace Weight yarn, a short while ago. It took some thinking, but I’ve come up with Gift #2. I’m working on a Vest pattern from Diamond Luxury Collection leaflet 1188. It’s an easy pattern, worked in two types of rib and then sewn together on 8mm needles. Instead of the yarn called for, I am using Patons Shetland Chunky in Oxford Grey.

I’ve decided that I will take it easy on my crafting fingers this year and spread my wings in other directions, as far as Christmas gifts are concerned. So, I’m enrolling in a few different art workshops at my local art store, Meta4. I’m looking forward to the Glass Fusion class and possibly a jewelry making class, as well. I’m still planning on giving everyone at least one homemade gift, but it won’t necessarily be using yarn 🙂

Since I am only a couple of inches along on the Vest I am knitting, I will refrain from posting a pic. But one will follow shortly! Especially if Barb at Never Enough Wool is right when she said it would take me only 8 hours to complete!
