...happy December every one! It is the most wonderful time of the year indeed. So many birthdays, Christmas, two more weeks of school. It seems that December is just one big celebration! Ahhh birthdays! First up my Mother's birthday (it's on Monday ya'll, December 5th). It's pitiful but I have to come clean and admit - I am always LATE sending my Mother's birthday gift. I know, shame on me! I ALWAYS have the best of intentions but then life happens, time goes so fast, Thanksgiving happens, then bam - it's December 5th already, the serger thread breaks, and I have to mail 1,000 miles away. Here I am again - LATE! I wish you knew my Mom, gracious, understanding, peacemaker that she is. One has to be a peacemaker when you have four kids! Her children arise and call her blessed (Proverbs 31:28).
Conversation earlier this week:
MOM: You know what I'd like? I'd like a new Infinity Scarf. I wore the one you made me to Church last Sunday and received soooo many compliments.
Me: No problem! Here you go, all sizes and colors, knits and woven (however, ever late).
I was just talking with a friend who just purchased her first serger. She's afraid of it; I remember that feeling. She was telling me that her thread had broken, and I tried to walk her through re-threading - over the telephone mind you. Same night I'm working to get these finished when all of a sudden my Serger thread breaks! Hasn't broken ALL year long! WTW!!!
Of course anyone can make an Infinity Scarf. I can actually make them in my sleep by now. There are all kinds of video available, but I used instructions from the October/November 2010 Vogue Pattern Magazine.
What types of scarves are you using to embellish your hand crafted designs this season????
