Holiday Knitting

Every year I get a project or two knit as Christmas gifts, so I thought that I would share the shawl style scarf that I knit for my sister-in-law.  It's called the "Holden Shawlette" and is a free download on Ravelry if you're interested...  I took a class on it this fall, at my favourite knitting store: Serenity Knits which was wonderful - knitters are such great people, and I find the class idea such a great way to try something new.  This is a large triangular scarf, started in the middle of the top, and knit back and forth, increasing each row until we were at around 400 stitches.  I've used a lovely icy-blue bamboo yarn that was wonderfully soft, with a lovely lustre.  My SIL loved it, so here she is modelling:

WOW Karen, that is a BEAUTIFUL scarf. It actually reminds me of the tatting my Mom and Grandmother used to do with those intricate lace details.
