I knit this for my friend who moved to wisconsin. I needed it done fast so I chose this pattern from the book Last Minute knit gifts.

I love the way it turned out. I have decided to knit several more for xmas gifts. The book claims that this is a two hour project. It took me like four hours, I guess I am a slow knitter.
As usual I wrote more about it on my blog.

A cool gift, I like it.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

That book is full of lies! None of the projects take as long as they estimate Smiley.

This hankerchief is great though! I've admired that pattern and have always meant to try it. I bet it's great for left-over yarn too.

Nice work!

I kinda thought 2 hours would be a really tough deadline even for a speedy knitter!  It is still faster then knitting a traditional scarf.  I am already making another for my mom I am going to make it a bit bigger as she likes things cozy.
