Holiday Glitter


The Holidays are all about glitter
so I was pretty excited when I saw 
Louisa Harding's new winter collection

 I couldn't wait to try Louisa's Simonetta yarn
which has "glittery" metallic fibers
added to the kid mohair.

I was so excited about Louisa's new book and yarn Simonetta,
that I organized a Holiday Glitter Knit-Along
(in the Louisa Harding group on Ravelry)
as a tribute to Louisa Harding
and her new collection.


I recently finished my Madelena  scarf for the
Holiday Glitter Knit-Along.
  If I do say so myself...
I think it's the prettiest scarf I've ever knit!

Today is the last day of the Holiday Glitter Knit-Along
and it has been so much fun! 
Knitters have participated from
England, Scotland, Germany, Canada
and the USA. 

I am normally a "flitter knitter" but knew I had to focus
and finish my KAL project by the deadline
 since after all, I organized it. 
Whew, I made it
(with a week or so to spare)
and even with doing my Christmas knitting.  

Teresa's Madelena Scarf

My knitting pen pal Teresa in England
joined in on the fun and
knit the Madelena scarf as well,
only in the two-color version. 

I loved how she styled hers
and wore it with a beautiful blue coat and,
of course, her wellies! 

Holiday Glitter

I styled my Madelena scarf with a vintage rhinestone Weiss pin
that adds just the right amount of sparkle
to the Simonetta yarn! 

Thanks to Louisa Harding...
I'm ready to sparkle for the holidays
and the New Year!
