Christmas present gone wrong!

Sooooo....one of the Christmas presents I was knitting was supposed to be a scarf for my Aunt whose taste I have a pretty good handle on. She lives in Ithica, NY - near Cornell. For those of you who know the area, you'll know just by that statement what she's into. Natural, earthy, neutral colors and styles. Well, I started making her a navy blue scarf, and realized about halfway through that I was going to run out of yarn. I was knitting at my boyfriend's house and had a case of the lazies. Without my faithful stash to dip into and pull out a second color to make it a multi colored scarf, I decided to make a cowl! It came out adorably and is now on sale in my etsy shop:


super happy with this, but i am not sure if it's my aunt would be into it. soooo, instead i am going to make her *another* scarf.

i have been having a problem balancing out holiday present crafts with etsy store crafts. I have just kind of been going on the fly, making ideas I have in my head...and when it's done, if I can look at it and say, "hey you're perfect for so-and-so!" it's a gift.

if not, then it goes in the shop. I am working on finishing up two recycyled sweater purses with adorable little owls on them. SO CUTE! can't wait until they're done.
