It is finally that time of year again - there is a crispness in the air, leaves start to change, socks and sweaters come out from hibernation and knitters start thinking about the holidays. Thankfully, Interweave is one step ahead of us and recently came out with their Holiday Gifts issue, jam packed with a wide variety of accessories and home decor to appeal to a wide variety of knitters (and gift recipients!)
The Ipswich Scarf by Elinor Brown, designed using Canopy Fingering in laguna, is a beautiful openwork lace scarf knit using a simple lace pattern with a lot of visual appeal. Designed using just two skeins of Canopy Fingering, it is the perfect quick gift to knit for someone you love - or, hey, keep it for yourself!
