Completed Christmas Gifts 2

You know I said that I had knitted a Wavy Baktus scarf in King Cole Riot DK Rhapsody, a stunning colourway, for my Support Officer but gave it to a friend?  Well, I did finish a second one, just increasing the needle size from 3.75mm to 4mm to give a better bounce to the waves.

I also completed a wrap for my boss, who just adores wraps.  I knitted the wrap in Deramores Vintage Chunky in Iris, using the deceptively simple pattern ‘Stolen Moments’ by Amy Swenson.  The wrap definitely benefitted from taking the time to block, it made all the difference.  For note, I wet blocked the wrap using Soak, which you do not need to rinse, then squashed the water out by rolling in a towel and pressing with my feet.  The pinning and measuring took ages, but I think you will agree with me, definitely worth it for the final result.
