She would make the PERFECT last-minute present... if you are still on the run, go and make one of those!
I knit my new cozy neckwarmer up in an evening, while watching "Around the Wold in 80 days" (yes, the old version). It took me only some remnants from my Wicked sweater (a little more than 1 skein of the wool I used for the collar) and a fabric covered button.
With all the stress of sewing custom knitting needle rolls for the shop and making small presents for my relatives and friends I just needed the feeling of doing something for myself (besides buying those glorious new boots yesterday... *gg*) - well, here it is: My personal make-me-feel-good-treatment.
Pattern: TUDORA by knitty.
Knit on 4.5 mm circular needles.
Loving it. ♥
Feeling very "Elisabeth" in it.
Hope you find the time to treat yourself good, too!
EDIT: Same day, in the evening.
This WAS my collar. It isn't anymore. My friend loved this so much, she literally "ripped" it from my neck... so now it's her christmas present.
We both are happy (for different reasons). Could it be better?!
