I was delighted this weekend to come up with an ingenious pattern that, in just one size, meets the following criteria:
fits adults and children
is hugely eye-catching and swishy
can be worn many different ways
is both warm and colourful
costs as little as $6.50 in luxury materials
can be knit in an evening
and fits neatly into this 4" x 7.5" tiny happy pencilcase-as-wrapping:
Technically I was making it to submit somewhere, but as I worked I realized it was also the perfect birthday present for a particularly glam friend, so she got Sample #1.
And that's what I love about knitting. I get to have fun and feel creative and make somebody happy all at the same time. Plus, now I have another option for last-minute gift knitting!
