Use your summer knitting time to get ready for Christmas.  Small items- just the kind that make great Christmas presents are the perfect type of portable projects for the summer.  We all tend to be on the move more in the summertime, so a small -grab it fast!- project is just the kind of thing you want to be working on.


I would like to suggest this Sinsation scarf.  It is small, very, very easy, and fast to whip up.  You will want to make several.

The yarn- Sinsation- is one of the softest, most luxurious chenilles you will ever handle.  You may not want to give the scarf away!  Maybe the best idea is to make an extra one for yourself.

Sinsation is available in a wide range of colors.  2 balls makes the scarf.
