Homemade Christmas Gift #1

Anyone need ideas for inexpensive homemade Christmas gifts this year? I've got a few. Some are my own, some are from others, some aren't necessarily homemade, but all are personal and relatively easy. I'll be posting them throughout the week so you'll have enough time if you wanted to make one or two before Christmas. If you have any homemade gifts you're giving this year, please post them! I need more ideas!!!

This scarf is from Katiedid's blog.

I used really thick, 100% wool yarn. The thicker the yarn, the easier it will be to keep it together. Measure how long you want the scarf to be and cut as many strands you need for your desired width. Then line them up and stitch back and forth in sections. The sections can be as long or as short as you want. I also liked using contrasting color threads. This isn't really a quick project until you get the hang of if, so give yourself a day to finish.
