Carried Away? NEVER.

22 Feb

Someone donated a ball of yarn to me and I fell in love with it.  I didn’t know how many yards I had, so I figured a scarf was a safe bet.

 

mmm...frosting...

I hate scarves that are too short.  HATE.  They hurt my soul.  So, to make sure this delicious yarny goodness would wrap my soul in warm fuzzies, I made a scarf that was 6 stitches wide (turned out to be about an inch and a half).  I used the biggest hook the yarn would allow, and did back post double crochets (just to be sure there would be no soul hurting).

 

Turns out I had more yarn than I thought I did.

 

Scarfy scarf was a *bit* too big for Nina, too...

So, you might now be asking if there’s such a thing as a scarf that’s too long, to which I say…  NEVER!

 

just wrap it around your neck sixty times and you'll be fine!

…In other news, someone switched the positions of my lip gloss and the crazy glue, leading to what could have been the flustercluck of the century (I think it was me, actually).  Good thing I know the difference between grape and ethyl cyanoacrylate…

Weekend WIPs

23 Jan

Remember those WIPs I was telling you about?  Remember that sick Husband I was telling you about?  Well, Sick Husband is really good at sharing, so now there’s a Sick Me, which means that the following WIPs have been largely ignored this weekend in favor of thick, snuggly bathrobes and hot tea:

 

some day these will be fantabulous stripey mitts for my darling Chibi...

 

this really ought to be a broomstick lace scarf... right now it's more of a broomstick lace post-it note...

 

And with that, I’m going back to bed.
