Other than celebrating my birthday, this month, I also looking forward to the Secret Santa Swap .
As for the Secret Santa,now that the Swap is over, I can show you the scarf I made for her and also the gift I received
I decided to start by choosing my yarn first. Since my swap partner’s favourite colour is purple, I went in search of a nice purple yarn.
When I checked Robyn Egge yarns website, it said that purchase of two or more skeins came with the pattern for the April Showers Scarf. That sealed the deal for me, cutting down on the the wild goose chase for the perfect pattern as well.
Its the perfect marriage of yarn and pattern, with the slightly variegated colour way giving an interesting character to the flower like design.
Once the pattern started making sense,the project was a breeze and the end result ,very satisfying for me.The yarn is divine to work with.So soft and squishy. I think the recipient liked it.
I did not know who my secret santa was. But I love the gift I got. A cowl. You all know how much I love my cowls .
I love colour and the textured pattern. So pretty!
How is the New Year going for you all? For me,the days seem to be blurring away faster than I would like.
I’m loving that its summer in January in this part of the world. Warm and sunny and nice most of the days.
