Mmmmm...I love the holidays! Here's a super quick gift I made for one of my buddies. The candles are "Sugar Cookie" scented and they smell verrrrry vanilla-y. I added the glitter effects, "snow", and some confetti stars on the bottom with a bit of Tacky Glue. Project time: 10 minutes.
She's working tomorrow, but I'm going to surprise her at work. Her favorite scent at Bath & Body Works is Warm Vanilla Sugar. They were sold out of the small lotions, so I got her some soap. Hope she likes it.
On the knitting front: I finished the eyelash scarf. Took about 3 hours total. Simple garter stitch - 12 stitches across. The finished project measures approximately 5" x 48" unstretched. The scarf drapes wonderfully, but it's a bit heavier than I expected. 4.2 ounces according to my digital scale. The weight is likely from the Homespun. And it looks prickly, but it's oh-so-soft! ^_^ I only used one skein of the Fun Fur and about 1/2 a skein of the Homespun.
Doesn't the close-up picture look neat? *pats digital camera*
