Just taking some time to share what I have been working on.
I pulled this book off the shelf the other day. It’s funny how you can look at a thing a thousand times and not be receptive to any idea it offers. Then one day…BAM!
There are a few patterns in this book I haven’t tried yet that look very promising. But, this one just kind of . . . reached out and grabbed me.
Just to get a feel for the pattern, which is soooo incredibly easy!, I pulled out some ‘scraps’ of yarn…
The biggest draw for me is using an over-sized hook. That makes it a very quick project. (I have made four scarves in about five days!) The most I have used on any one scarf was just under 6 ounces of Caron’s Simply Soft yarn. Plus, these scarves are so totally eye-candy impressively appealing! Just throw on a scarf, and you are ‘all dressed up’ The possibilities are endless!
Here’s another version…this one turned out a little better.
A couple more shots just to show some detail…I decided it was fun to wear this one in layers. And, worn as a shawl, they are just the right touch of extra warmth to wear any time you need to ward off that little ‘chill’.
Just like Lays Potato Chips. Can’t stop at just one!
I hope to have given you just a little bit of inspiration for an easy, fashionable, quick, stylish, something-to-whip-up-quick-for someone you love (or, totally-for-yourself-because-you-can) gift on your Christmas gift list. Hug someone you love…and do it often. Just because you can!
