A Smattering of Things

Keep the suggestions coming! May's comment definitely brought up another option I hadn't considered - sending finished knits to my sister, who is an RA at her college and might be able to sell to her residents. hmmm. More ideas/stories are welcome.

Recent knitting:
Leftover Christmas-y presents for friends who are allergic to wool. And amazingly the only yarn I had here on campus before break was 100% wool. Oops! Here are a scarf (finished) and a hat (obviously unfinished) from Bernat baby boucle, both of which I'll hopefully wrap up and hand off tomorrow.

Happy New Year, Allison! That idea about sending FOs to your sister sounds like a good one. College students are always in need (or want :-)) of different accessories, so that sounds like a great venue. The scarf for your friend looks so soft and lovely- I'm sure she'll love it! And YAY for ER and Old Navy! Take care! :-)
