2014 Sky Scarf

Sky Scarf Gift Kit

Sky Scarf Gift Kit

One of our Christmas gifts to our older daughter this year was a Sky Scarf Kit.  Have you ever seen a sky scarf?  They are just beautiful when finished.  For every day of the year you knit a row or two of the color(s) of the sky for that day.  One could also crochet it but our seven year old knows how to knit so we are making the knitted version.  Tomorrow we will start our beautiful little project and by the end of the year we’ll have a finished project to show you.  Happy New Year.  Are you planning any knew projects for 2014?

There is a certain soulfulness to toys handmade with natural materials that plastic toys can never attain.  James Harvey‘s rocking animals will be treasured for generations.  Besides the aesthetic beauty of these fabulous toys I love that with each purchase James donates a portion of the sale to a charity that helps conserve elephants and rhinos in East Africa.

“The combination of African wildlife and working with wood led James to design and hand-make quality rocking rhinos, hippos and elephants under the name of ‘Rocking Rhinos’.”
