Holy illusion scarf!! I have never heard of this, but that is sooooo cool! Are there patterns out there for it or is there a tutorial for the technique?

Yeah, if you go to Ravelry and just search "illusion" or "illusion knit" into the pattern search quite a few come up and I believe they are all free too!  It's really easy to do, time consuming, but easy.  It's really fun to watch it come to life with each row  Smiley 

Thanks for all the great feedback on the scarf  Grin

Crap!  Freestyle, I tried to take a teaser pic, but the stupid battery on my camera died right when I turned it on.  The battery takes about 12 hours to recharge, so I couldn't take a pic before I sent out.  I need to get a spare battery for when that happens...

Here is my stocking and gorgeous goodies from islandmum. We decided to do a small stocking, but I was spoiled. This is the whole lot together.


she made a great stocking...I love the shape and it was filled with loads of chocolate coins, a gorgeous little coin purse that was made from one zipper so you can unzip the whole thing, its really cute and I have put it away to tuck into my daughters stocking as she adores those zip purses.

there was also a great keychain, with skulls!! speaking of skulls, she made me the most awesome sling bag, from denim with a brilliant day of the dead skull embroidered on it.


 Her mom also took part, she made this cutest christmas pudding (filled with more chocolate!!)


There was a brilliant little book by trevor bradley grieve, I have a couple of these, but not this one and they are too cute. A really handy little diary for 2010, some votive candles and my very favourite item of all was two luggage tags. My DD and I travel a lot and these are so cute and adorable!!


Thanks so much islandmum. I loved everything.

Ha ha ha! I just emailed the teaser link to my mom and she was AMAZED!!! She might be more excited than me. I'm gonna wait around Tuesday for the boxes, then I'll take them all up to my parent's house to open. That will be the longest 90 minutes of my life!!!

Marley has to do allergy testing Wednesday morning. I wonder if I should save her box for afterwords, as a little reward...

these packages have all been amazing.... but my tired old eyes are really having a hard time discerning what the actual stockings look like.....  any chance of getting shots of just the stockings?  I would especially like to see the curly toed one.

Thanks everyone!
