Just in time for her to go to Hawaii!!!

I finished the Entrelac Scarf (ravelry link) and pseudo-Fetching mitts....JUST in time for my friend to be going to HAWAII for Christmas! LOL At least she'll have them for when she returns to work in Jan.

Sweet Pea 1 grudgingly modeled these for me. These were in my last post but they've been blocked since and the pictures are better here.

Specs: Fetching pattern with a few modifications (in the notes on Ravelry). I mis-read the pattern so there is a cable at the wrist which should be at the top of the glove, but I thought it would be fine since my friend has small hands.
Yarn: Malabrigo silk blend (30% silk, 70% merino extrafine wool).
Needle: US7 (I think)

Specs: Finished size 9" x 58" My friend is 5'1. I think she'll be warm!
Yarn: Noro Silk Garden Lite #2018 - 4 skeins
Needle size US5

Now back to knitting a couple more presents.

Beautiful job! LOL that she's going to Hawaii as soon as she gets them. A really considerate friend would change her plans and go skiing instead. :D But that may just be sour grapes on my part since I'm FREEZING right now.
