Finished

In all honesty, I have been procrastinating on holiday gifts. This doesn't mean I haven't been creative. When I finished Aine's holiday poncho (which turned out oh-so-cute), I cast on immediately for Eamon's shawl. He requested the Vulpix shawl several months ago. He loves Pokemon and picked colors to represent his favorites. The selected colorways were out of stock at the time, so the project was moved aside. The yarn finally arrived just in time for gift-giving. However, the pattern requires a bit of concentration, which means it is not conducive to park knitting.
Enter the Just Enough Ruffles scarf. It was the perfect distraction, and the perfect knit for the everyday. After only three days of knitting, it turned out quite nicely. I used Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted in the Tuscany colorway. I think the colors play nicely in the scarf. I was able to knit it at a couple park days while talking, pushing kiddos on swings and laughing at everyone's antics.
