It's not made with yarn but,..
I recently (like yesterday) attended a wire wrapping class at a local bead shop. I had so much fun and was so distressed over the scarf I was trying to make that I changed my focus a bit. I have plenty of leftover beads from back in my beading days - mostly hemp necklaces which were super cool back then.
What better use than to make my Christmas presents and something pretty at that. I forgot to take a picture of the first one I made for my sister. It had garnets instead of the pretty cobalts I used here.
This one is for my mom - she doesn't really get what a blog is yet so this will still be a surprise! =)
