Starting late also means finishing late, i was reminded of this year unfortunately. Alas i have finally finished the last of the holiday giftyness and am ready to pass them onto the parental units! A scarf for each of the parents as they plan this year to start building a house in a cooler climate then where they live today. Really i think anywhere is cooler than where they are in the Southern California area ... yep, another 80 degree Christmas this year. So i decided to help build their non-existent winter wardrobes up with some cute scarves. I am super pleased with how each turned out and it was only my third time blocking lace! My first time blocking anything so wide (other blocking adventures were for Lace trim only a couple inches wide).
