I didn't want to spoil anything by showing you what I've been knitting, as they were Christmas presents. Not that the people I gave these to actually know that I have a blog, but there you are. So first up, I made my MIL a scarf using this pattern. I'm not certain about the yarn name, but it's a mohair blend.
Then I made this for my mom using Shulana pacolana, which is a wool/alpaca blend. Nice and soft, bulky weight, and knit up fast using Misti Chunky Ribs & Ruffles Scarf pattern.
And since I had leftover yarn, having bought two balls of the pacolana, I made Mom a Fidget, which I think turned out rather cute with silver buttons.
