Lacy Scarf miracle
I've been spending the evenings knitting and thinking about how in the world we're going to afford Christmas this year. I've decided that the most important aspect of the holiday is that we spend it together as a family and that we do as little shopping as possible. A matter-of-fact, I'm encouraging homemade items like cookies, pumpkin bread, tea cup candles, and chex mix. And these scarves...although, I think this purple one is for me. I'm enjoying this lace pattern and the tweedy yarn with its occasional specks of colour amongst the sea of purple. I'm very happy with the results and can't believe I'm actually knitting this...it's almost as though the hands of my Oma are helping me in some way as I feel as though part of my success is through instinct, but another part is through concentration and practise. I'd like to think, though, that it's my guardian angel holding my hands.
