Braided

Over the holidays I knit up the Braided scarf. I've never seen or thought to use an i-cord to make a braid before. This project was fast, and really fun to knit.



I left mine behind with my mom (lucky her!), as it's pretty thick and chunky, and a little too cozy for winter in LA.



Another quick project I whipped up for the holidays, was a crocheted gift bag to hold the cork elves I made. A fun alternative to wrapping paper!

The scarf turned out great!

I really like the idea of the little crocheted Gift Bag. I may make up a few of these with leftover yarn all thru the year. Then, I'll have wrapping alternatives for next Christmas!

Thanks for the idea, Sarah!
