in the post

Look what the Postman left in the letterbox.
What a nice surprise, a little something for me from my Mum!

Some very nice chocolates and a fantastic pair of fingerless gloves.
These are Jet and match the hooded vest she knitted for me last Easter (2007).

So in return, I have whipped up a couple of Bainbridge Scarfs.
I love this pattern, because it is simple yet beautiful and you can adapt it a number of ways to suit.
You can find the pattern here!

The Taupe colour has ties as the original pattern.
But the Plum has a button as per the modification suggested by flintknits.

These neck warmers really do make lovely gifts
and are very quick and easy to knit, while consuming a hot pot of Tea.

Those fingerless gloves are beautiful. I really like your neck warmers as well. I'm checking out the pattern in a second. Yummmm, tea :o)
