Better Late Than Never

So, I finally finished the Christmas present for Sarah! It is a neck scarf made of hand spun alpaca. The yarn
was core spun from a roving (the last of the batch, actually) I dyed 2 years ago. It was fun to knit and it is
incredibly soft. The pattern is by Robyn Diliberto for Make One called the "Flower Scarf" I used a vintage
button instead of the knitted ball for the closure called for in the pattern.                                                                                
 Above is a picture of the yarn before knitting.

And I added matching knitted mitts. The pattern is from a class I took two years ago at the Jefferson City Fiber Retreat with Kathy Harberbarger. I did add the knitted thumbs as my thumbs tend to get cold so I figured Sarah's would, too. It was a fun class with Kathy and I enjoyed it very much. She is a wonderful teacher! So, there is my better late than never Christmas present to Sarah! I hope you were able to finish all your Christmas presents, too!

Talk to you soon,  Tammy
