I didn't knit many gifts this year. I made a beautiful scarf for a friend but forgot to take a picture of it before I gifted it. I used the Covetable Cable Scarf pattern by Lion Brand Yarn. It came out beautiful using a light green for 50% of the work then switching to a dark mossy/brown green for the rest.

The other knitted gift I made led to my husband screaming 'thats awesome'. He is a huge fan of the Firefly series and loves Jane Cobb's odd hat. So I found a pattern and made it into an ornament. The cool thing about making a Jane hat is that any mistakes a knitter makes just makes it more endearing. After all this was a strange hat hand knitted by Jane's mom and is not perfect.

What my cats did while I knitted for the holidays.


  1. Hi Megan,

    That's so cool that you have such a great hobby and passion for knitting! It's something I've always wanted to learn...but then I think back to our 9th grade Food and Textiles class and realize anything with needles is not for me.

    Do you make kid scarves? My girls have been bugging me to buy scarves for them and I refuse based on the prices in the stores. I'd love to order some from you though, if you're interested. Let me know!
