I have finished so many projects in the last week. The first two are Christmas presents for my brother and his wife (a scarf each), both were knitted from Noro yarn. I have never used this yarn before and I LOVE it. The colours are beautiful and so is the feel of the yarn.

Garter Stitch Scarf
Material: Noro Iro- 12 ply/ Bulky, Wool, Silk
Needle Size: 8mm
Inspiration: Brooklyn Tweed

Noro Striped Scarf
Pattern: Jared Flood
Material: 4 Skeins Noro Silk Garden- 10 ply/Aran. Silk, Mohair, Wool
Needle Size: 4.5mm

This next project was made for "The Great Knitted Purse Swap" on Ravelry. It was sent across the great ocean to live in America with Susan. The Original pattern suggests embroidery flowers on the outside of the bag, but I wanted something different, so I went with buttons.

Daphne Purse
Pattern: Louisa Harding
Material: Peaches and Cream- 10 ply/ Worsted Cotton
Needle Size: 4.5mm and 5.5mm
