Lisa’s Scarf

Well, it’s a couple of days late, but I’m going to be mailing Lisa’s Christmas present to her this week! Av and I have been Big Brother & Big Sister to Danny and Lisa for about seven years now – right after we got married we contacted BBBS – and the four of us have made a great match. We started when Lisa was in the 8th grade and Danny was in the 2nd grade.

Lisa is all grown up now and in the Navy and is stationed in San Diego, but she wanted me to knit her a lightweight scarf (since it stays pretty warm there) – this one is the Karabella Cosmos that I bought at Serendipity Needleworks in Tuscaloosa. I knit it on size 17 needles, 12 knits per row. I only used 1-1/2 of the 3 balls I bought for it, so if any of you would like the other 1-1/2, just email me ( ginger AT deepfriedkudzu {dot} com ) and I will send them to you! I’m sending her some other things, but this one I am most proud of since it is made by me. I thought of her with every stitch.
Speaking of knitting…I don’t remember what I was searching for the other day, but I found this really neat website called “Knitting in Color” that shows how to make knit curliques! I would love to try that sometime…
