After seeing the adorable wool felt needle holder that Waldorfmama made the other week, I took a small break from knitting one evening this week to work on a bit of handsewing. My circular needles have been getting lost at the bottom of my knitting basket so a needle case seemed like a wonderful solution. (Has anyone seen my size 11 circ by the way? Apparently, it's still floating in there somewhere...)
As far as knitting goes, I'm still working slowly on Elizabeth's blanket, late at night so she won't catch a glimpse, but I also finished this amazingly soft merino/silk scarf for a family member for Christmas. (Note to family members: you might want to take a break from WIP Wednesday posts through the end of the year unless you're the sort that would slit the tape on the wrapped present just to find out before the big day. You know who you are. ;) The yarn is Malabrigo's Silky Merino in Wisteria, and the pattern is a simple one-stitch lace scarf.
