Megan's Scarf

I was lucky enough to test a pattern for RubyShoesCreations on Ravelry. She calls it Ruby's Loopy Scarf, and her pattern is posted at the Ravelry site. It was not hard, went fast, and really looks good. I did make a boo boo in that I pulled up the cables going in
the wrong direction, but did like the way it turned out so left it. I used Vanna's Choice - from a box that Beverooni sent to me (THANK YOU again!) - and think it turned out really nice. I am thinking of making another one for me, but not quite as wide (I have a skinny short neck holding up my pea brain!). This one is going to my niece in Boston - she'll need it!

Christmas is coming up fast, even though we are only in September.  I'm making a concerted effort to finish presents that I make instead of bought ones, so this is a wonderful project for me. Have you ever done that....just made all the presents? I never have, although I've made them often through out the year.  One of the things that I thought I'd do is to try making donation articles along the way - smaller ones - and send 'presents' to those places that need them. It is heart warming, and actually a gift to myself as much as one to where I send it. What are you doing to warm the cockles of your heart?
