Quick Christmas Gifts



Back in October, I knit a scarf for the Creative Festival, using Gedifra Filorosa yarn from my LYS. That yarn is simply a collection of yarns of different texture and colour, that go together, in the opinion of the yarn manufacturer. As a matter of fact, customers commented, that it looks like the manufacturer picked up a handfull of yarn bits, from the factory floor, and just tied them together.

Soooo, I thought, I can do that, with yarn from my stash.
Here is the result.

I collected all my single balls, and part balls of yarn in related colors into a bin, and then started to wind 5 to 7 meter sections, tied them together, and then knit a scarf. Using my LK100, bulky knitter, started at one side of the bed, crochet cast-on 25 to 30 stitches, knit 2 rows, decrease one stitch on one side, increase one stitch on other side, and knit two rows until I reached the desired length.

I think these are gorgeous.
