parade of gifts: martha.

fidget, kitten, seagull.

i waited until everyone received their handmade gifts before blogging them.
it was painful.
all i wanted to do was share.
i began biting my fingernails.
my nail beds look disgusting.
but, the holiday has past and now you will get to see everything.





i made this scarf as an homage to an idol who has a strong affiliation with this particular shade of blue.

Pattern Source: fidget by robin dodge.

Needles: random size 11 bamboo straights; someone gave them to me.

Materials: misti alpaca chunky.

loved: i have made this before, and knew i could finished it quickly.
