Yay! Alert the media! I finally finished something!
:woohoo:

I made the hat back when I was in the mountains last Fall. And I really wanted a scarf to go with it to make the set complete.

The yarn came from a "Nicky Knits" kit I bought in the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby. Originally, the kit cost about 50 dollars, but I got it on sale for about 12. :wink:

Lots of bulky ALPACA yarn was inside the kit. Way cool! cloud9

So, here is the set I made. So soft and warm. Love it! :heart:

Thanks! :)

Now, I'm making a couple wristwarmers with the same yarn. I'm also thinking of making ankle warmers as well.

You're always doing charity KAL's, what do you mean that you finally finished something?:teehee: :mrgreen:

I know what you mean about 'finally making something for yourself'.. I noticed when I was putting photos in ravelry.. that almost everything that I had made last year was knitted for others.. (and I didn't even take photos of everything that I knitted)

My goal this year.. 'make more items' for myself. HOWEVER, I have already knitted a few things (for others) since 2008 .. oh, yes, I do remember one item that I knitted for myself- a small knitted Christmas ornament. :aww: At least.. it's a start!


I am going to try to do better.. and I am currently working on a simple scarf for myself.


I think it will look great to have all sorts of winter gear out of the same yarn.. that way, you can wear as much as you need/want.

They look great! Don't you love alpaca? I have a "thing" for it too. Just so soft and wonderful. I love that colour too.

Thank you all so much! :muah:

You're always doing charity KAL's, what do you mean that you finally finished something?
Most of my charity knitting has been just knitting a PORTION of something, so it doesn't feel like I ever finish anything. I've started 7 Oddball Blankets, 2 Oddball Lapghans, 2 Oddball Shawls, and 12 Oddball Baby Blankets. They are all sent off to be completed by other knitters. So, it kinda feels like sending my children out into the world. :teehee:

Exactly! :thumbsup:

Alpaca is a little bit of heaven. cloud9
