My next Christmas present

As I am retired and on a meager fixed retirement income I am forced to make my presents this year(I like that though). I am now making a Irish hooded scarf with pockets for my wife. Color is a Denim Heather.

That is a nice looking pattern. I think handmade gifts are wonderful. I just hope that your family and friends appreciate the amount of love and time you put into knitting them. Most do.

Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Beautiful so far! A hooded scarf with pockets... Never heard of anything like it. Can't wait to see the final thing.

This is looking great. I'm in the same boat as you and am making hand knit gifts as well.

Knitting gifts *can* be expensive - but face it, they do double or triple duty - entertainment and occupying your time - and THEN as a gift...
