or two, or three.
I've been making scaves as gifts recently & took my knitting needles on holiday. There's a great wool/craft shop nearby called 'Elizabeths' and I found some lovely wool by Rico. I always have to feel the wool as a lot of wool mixes feel scratchy to me. The one I used was Rico Baby in Petrol (teal really) - this one's for my sister-in-laws birthday as it's her favourite colour right now...
To make this scarf, which wraps round & hangs longish with the tassels, I only needed (less than) 2 balls of wool, making it economical too as this wool is less than £3 a ball & super soft. When we got home I wasted no time in ordering more in other colours, choosing red, purple & redbrown to start...
the photo doesn't show the colours at all well - the one of the far left is actually a lovely russet brown, and the middle is a dark purple!
I've already made the red scarf for my friend's birthday this weekend which I hope she'll like;
and I've started using the redbrown to make a 'fitted' scarf (no idea what they're really called) - ie the scarf is wider, then twisted & the ends sewn together - there's alot of them in the shops right now & they're very cute.
I already plan on getting more wool as I think they're a lovely gift, hopefully everyone else will too. Hope you enjoy your weekend. x
