My friend Meghan, whom I affectionately call my daughter, made this fantastic scarf for me recently. It's created from a couple of different types of novelty yarns, and is just the warmest and most comfortable thing to have around my neck on a 20° day while walking to get my groceries! Meghan is a prolific knitter, always, always working on a project or three.
And another friend, Kelly, crocheted this great cap for me last week! I love the muted colors in the yarn, and the style of the pattern fits around my head perfectly, clinging at the bottom so it's really, really warm. Kelly's mother, Betsy, has knit me several pairs of socks, too. They're a crafty family!
