Green Garter Girl
I was really afraid that the colors where not right. But they were - totally a hit. Man, I was so relieved. She deserves the best and colors are such a personal matter.
A green color is not just green.
There are a million green colors. I took a chance and added some red to spark it all up. And that was a hit too.
This is another Hitchhiker scarf. I love knitting it, and it is so great to use both in summer and winter.
You start with a couple of stitches and increase and decrease in a pattern that is easy to memorize.
You can see my rainbow hitchhiker here and another one with some orange fun here. It is very addictive to knit this - just one more teeth and another one.
The Madelinetosh yarn is soft and perfect if you do not like scratchy wool.
On Etsy I found just the perfect beads to add with the tassels.
And, I also found a tote bag that my friends name was added to. That was so much fun. And the gift got so personal. Nothing is more lovely than to give handmade things.
