QUICK & EASY Finished Objects

As we did last year, we will be having a holiday gift exchange at work. For our holiday luncheon, we will be taking a cruise out on the bay. It will be freezing cold, but fun.

I made this hat & scarf for Jodi. I think it will suit her quite well. She likes to ski, so hopefully she'll get some use out of this.

Last but not least is this pink scarf I made for myself. This was my "take a break from the Frost Flowers & Leaves shawl" project. I needed some mindless knitting, and this wonderful pink color was calling my name. I didn't realize it at first, but there are "sparkles" in this. Pretty cool!!

Everything you make is gorgeous and the fact that they're fast is just bonus.
