Soft And Colorful Scarf

I just finished up a colorful scarf using three Yarn Bee skeins I got for Christmas from my daughter. It is a knitted scarf using and alternate knit three and purl three pattern, randomly changing colors every few row. I used a single crochet border followed by row of chain 5 loops.
I am not sure if I am going to keep this scarf for myself, give it away as a gift, or sell it.

Wordless Wednesday

I usually don't buy kits, but I decided to get this ornament one since it was half off. It came with 10 half styrofoam balls (why not make them whole???) 2 sets of plastic knitting needles, ONE piece of ribbon, and instructions. I think I would of been disappointed if I paid full price.

Blue Cowl

I usually do Blue Monday on my other blog, but this cowl is screaming blue that I had to share it there. I started out making this into an infinity scarf, but I found that the Glamous yarn was itchy so I went with cowl so it doesn't come in contact with the skin.

Drop Stitch Scarf

I made up this drop stitch scarf using the same pattern as the Cuddly Dropped Stitch Shawl I did in August of last year. I used three different colors of Caron Simply Soft yarn. What I did not like is that it curled up on the ends. I guess I could block it or leave it as is.

Last week I mailed off the bulky purple and white I made for my daughter to give to her boss. I am happy to report the new owner loves her scarf.

Luxury Infinity Scarf

I recently splurged on some really beautiful yarn at my LYS, I ended up making this really nice infinity scarf.
 The yarns I ended up purchasing for this project is James C. Brett Marble, DK weight, and Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints.
 All I did to make this was I used a size K crochet hook, did a chain of about 100, did a sc in every chain and did continuous rounds of sc in the back loops. I kept going until I ran out of the Bamboo Bloom yarn. I switched yarns every row. When I got to the bulky sections of the Bambo Bloom yarn, I did a slip stitches.
Now I have to decide if I want to keep this for sell it at the upcoming craft fair our church holds every spring.

Scarves

It must be the cold weather that is inspiring me to make a bunch of scarves, because I have a lot of scarves started. First I have the purple and white one that is finished.  My daughter bought the yarn for me to make for her boss.  It is kinda like a netted cluster.


  The blue one I have is made up the same way. 
 I have a knitted one that is made up of three novelty yarn I got for Christmas. It is done in K3, P3 every row.


The last one is a crochet cowl made up of some novelty yarn I got from my LYS (local yarn store). I am really liking the colors of that scarf. Unfortunately the photo does not do it justice.

Home Made Pasta and Scarves

Nothing like home made noodles and sauce. I have been making home made noodles for years, but still have not perfected a sauce. The sauce did not turn out as expected, but still delicious

Changing the subject, I have three scarves I am working on. One of them is a knitted drop stitch scarf.
I have a bulky purple and white crocheted scarf that is almost done, and a knitted scarf using three different bulky yarns I got for Christmas.
