Christmas Projects

 What is that???  I actually knitted these - I am hearing they are "the latest thing" - scarves knitted with a ribbon yarn.  I'm not even a knitter and first efforts turned out really nice.  Then, they were like potato chips - couldn't stop!  They are soft around the neck, add some bling, and they squish nicely under a coat collar, etc.

Below is one of my Christmas Banners.  I just like looking at it.  I don't have wall space left, so it's hanging over my favorite rocking chair.


Here is another Christmas Banner - no, you can't simply copy this one - you NEED the instruction - so easy to misplace pieces - I know!  This is a Terry Adkinson design from many years ago.  I have 2 or 3 more in the planning stage.  The back has those vintage Santas posted on an earlier post.

What fun scarves--and even a beginner can turn them out this nice? Cool!
Love the Christmas banners. I think they look great over a chair--good idea!

Love your scarves. I have some of that ribbon yarn but have not taken the time to play with it yet. Nice Christmas banner, too.

I love the banners! I looked up Terry Adkinson and the computer always changes it to Atkinson. I guess the pattern is no longer available. I checked on her web site, Ebay and Etsy.

Love your quilted banners. Displayed over a chair is a great idea!
Your knitted scarves are fab! How does one go about getting on your gift-list? lol. They are pretty!
