I mentioned in my Holiday Sneak Peek post that I found a really quick and easy scarf pattern - the Uptown Scarf from Weekend Knitting. Seriously, this was so easy. Just knit stitches on really big, size 35 needles. It knits up in a night of dvr watching. After I made one for a friend, I had to make one for myself!
I have to admit, that I felt a little weird buying such huge needles, like I couldn't call myself a real knitter if I used them. Oh well, I am just a beginning knitter... and the instant gratification was worth it.
I went with inexpensive yarn on this one - just Lion Brand Thick and Quick in Sky Blue and Butterscotch. I think I am going to graduate to a yarn from my LYS Knitorius for the next quick gift on my list.
With so many craft projects on my gift list, I need to get back to my sewing machine at some point. But for now, I really enjoy cozying up on the sofa with my quilt, knitting and dvr.
