I knitted this horse shoe lace scarf from the 2 oz of alpaca/merino blend fiber I bought at the Weavers and Spinners Guild Open House. I spun it DK weight and although I thought about dyeing the fiber, I left it the natural color. I love the grey with silver highlights.
This stocking cap is made from Simply Soft 100% acrylic. Blue, brown and white. I chose acrylic because it's washable and indestructible. It is going in a package to Uganda as a Christmas gift for the young man we have sponsored for several years. We are including a little photo album so he can save our pictures, a set of good quality bed sheets so he will be comfortable in his school dorm bed, some money for a new set of school uniforms and letters to encourage him and remind him that his photo lives on the front of our frigerator and that we are thinking of him and praying for him.
