I will see my best friend and his GF this weekend to give one of the scarf. I am going to see their reaction to it and see if they want another scarf and the hats I have planned! I really like the WVU scarf and I think they will reall enjoy it as well. I have a feeling I will be making more :)
Also, I test knit a pattern called Nati for Dimanche (Rav link) and needed get it finished before I continued the Christmas knitting! I LOVE this pattern. It's for beginning knitters and it's so easy! I did mess up the garter rows for the arms by missing stitches and stuff, so I ripped back to the start of the arms and re-knit them over the Thanksgiving Holiday. It took a little bit of time, but I finished it up at the DBF's family Thanksgiving.

Last night, I finished up a Thorpe for my brother. It's so nice and super warm! I think I will be knitting more of them, besides the ones on my Christmas knit list!

More photos to come... The thorpe and a sweater photo shoot too :) If I can convince the DBF this weekend. :)
