Alison,
those are lovely! I am amazed at your lace knitting fortitude! I was originally going to make some simple lace scarves for my friends and then I just wasn't able to get going on it.... As it turns out I think the Landscape shawl is all I can handle for now. :)

Those are wonderful! I can't believe you made those as gifts. Very impressive. Your knitting is gorgeous and they are just going to love them.

My mom, sister and myself loved our scarves. We got to open them early while Alison was visiting since we won't be together at Christmas, and she wanted to see our faces when we opened our scarves.
Of course, mine was my favorite color purple. Ali does such beautiful work knitting. I will never be able to knit like she does. I'm still trying to learn the knit and purl techniques.

Hi Alison,

Thanks for dropping a comment at my site about the bolero. I love these scarves - I'll bet the recipients did too. they're very special without being overstated.
