I am almost done with the Christmas knitting! All three scarves are finished and since they're being done in shades of brown I decided the one for my niece needed a little extra embelishment to make it a touch more girly. Conveniently enough, my knitting friend (she who is fostering that adorable calico knitting accessory I showed you a few days ago) recently made a scarf with the neatest fringe - little yarn curly spirals! Friday night at the craft night (in between being sat on by a teeny kitten) she showed all of us how to make them. So the past few nights I've been frantically knitting away on spirals of my own.

Here's a sneak preview of the scarf for my niece, since one end - and all its curly spirals - is done. They just make the scarf look bouncy and fun. I hope she likes it!

Oh, and a little bit of post-knitting gratification to report. I went to the baby shower for which I made this and she loved it. In fact, as she picked up my package she got this excited look on her face and said "Oh, I hope this is what I think it is!" And it was - yay me!

I want to make my granddaughters the "springs" or spirals as my grandmother use to call them for their hair. We use to wear them as hairbows. I have a very old one but can't remember haw to make it.
