Wrapped In Glass

Gift wrapping is so much fun. At least if it does not have to go into the mail.

And I like to keep it out of the box. Well, this time inside a big jar. This is a gift for a special friend who love to preserve the fruit and berries we have available in Norway.

Extra yarn and label from it in a little bag.
She is also a skilled artist with a big heart for everyone else.

She gives so much - and this time it is finally me who gives her something unexpected.

I knitted this scarf long time ago and blogged about it then.

I have never used it - it is really not my color scheme although I like the colors and the yummy yarn.

I knitted it in double moss stitch and that made the yarn stand out. I think she will like it - at least I hope so.

The pattern is from the everlasting Baktus - one of my favorite patterns. You can read more about this project on my Ravelry page.

I found a big jar and added a chalk board sticker to it. Those are great for almost anything you like to label. In addition there are some extra yarn and the label from it.

I actually think I will use jars again for gift wrapping. With some paper around no one will guess what is inside.

Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it

  1. En genial måte å pakke inn gaver på.
    Jeg lager noen ganger gaver som ser ut som en blomsterbukett som er pakket inn, det er også morsomt. Eller fyller en pose det pleier å være vinflaske i, med andre ting enn vin.
    Jeg liker foressten å gi bort gaver, mer enn å få!!!
    God søndag.

  3. Fed ide, og krukken kan hun jo sylte i når tørklædet er kommet i brug, og iøvrigt - fedt tørklæde, jeg er vild med dbl perlestrik, men hader selv at strikke det, får altid strikket forkert, og det kan bare ses meget i perlestrik :))

  11. Det var fine farger i sjalet ditt!

    Et svar til din kommentar hos meg: Jeg har ikke strikket vottene fram og tilbake, men på rundpinner :) Tror faktisk det var tanken i oppskriften, men at det ikke var skrevet så tydelig! Det var i alle fall slik jeg tolket oppskriften :) Ellers blir det jo veldig tungvint...
