The next gift I have been able to finish is a pattern my friend requested called Vector by Tanis Lavalee (of Tanis Fiber Arts). This pattern appeared in the infamous Brooklyn Tweed's Wool People Vol. 7 in both a wrap and a scarf version. I chose to knit the scarf using this beautiful yarn by Black Trillium Fibre Studio. The gradient colours are absolutely beautiful in person. You may recall that I knit Algiers in the colourway called Grasshopper earlier this year, one of my all time favourite patterns. The only modification I made was knitting each colour only once in the scarf.

The result was a garter stitched scarf that shows of the gradient yarn beautifully.
I used pretty much all the yarn and the result was a long scarf that you can wrap around your neck a couple times. Hopefully my friend will be happy with it.
And on a funny note, I guess my grade six students realize how passionate I am about knitting. Here is a part of a poster one of my students made, with me in the sled. It really made me laugh.
I hope your preparations are going smoothly and you are finding time to enjoy yourself (including some knitting time)!
