Brrrrrr

Hello sweets,

back with a card I have made for my friend Heidi along with a quick knitted gift for Christmas. I want to show it on my blog before it gets too late since we are already thinking “Valentine” and Spring, right? Not here in Michigan… some of you might now… we have gotten severe weather conditions and I am grateful to have a home and a roof over my head for sure.

Heidi has blonde hair and I thought this pale color would look so pretty on her. The yarn is Madeline tosh Pashmina – which is already VERY luxurious, but I have also added for the extra cute effect a second strand of Rowan Kid Silk Haze yarn. It does look very dreamy and I hope she enjoys it.

Pattern is a simple one, since I was late with my gift for her and I needed this to be done within 2 days.

I hope that the weather improves soon, it seems that we're all being affected by various freak weather conditions at the moment! Stay warm and keep safe! Hugs, Lisa x

Beautiful card and gorgeous details and I am envious of your knitting talent, when I tried to learn all I ended up with was holes,my auntie could knit and watch TV at the same time and made me some pretty clothes for my dolls when I was little.
