Scarves galore
Well, I got all the scarves done for my four nieces and one nephew just in time for Christmas. In between making the Christmas scarves, I worked on this multi-colored scarf for myself. I've learned that stockinette curls, but that's ok, because this was just a fun practice scarf using 75 recycled yarn from this sweater.

I'm really, really, really going to move onto something more challenging... :rollseyes: like a hat on circular needles to go with that scarf since I still have quite a bit of that yarn.

The picture of you with the striped scarf looks like an ad! You've been a knitting machine! Everything looks great--and go for the hat. It'll be fun.

Thanks!

Machine? Nah... just a little free time. The colors of the multi scarf are really much better than the picture shows and the furry once are much 'funner-looking' in person. LOL, my DH came upstairs just as the camera's self timer was about to take the picture... does kinda look like an ad though.

Dang, I wish! Nah, just the multi colored. I have to add that it was a lot of work recovering, washing, and re-balling that yarn - not for the impatient type at all. The others scaves are about 3/4 skeins of Homespun each except for the boys blue and white which is way smaller than the girls extra long scarves.

Off to Michaels!!! :XX:
