New projects

Well last night I managed to get 4 squares done for the poncho like sis made. I am making it for a friends little girl. I get most of my ideas from sis.

I did however see a pattern today in the Lion Brand Notebook (See link on right sidebar). It was for a spiral scarf made with Homespun. Well I am not a fan of home spun but I tried it anyway and after an episode and half of Friday Night Lights I had it finished. It took exactly one skein and I used a size "P" hook. I did not follow the pattern exactly, I only followed the chain 140 and then I went on my own and made it a bit ruffler than they did. I also only felt I needed 3 rows instead of 4. Here is a picture of me wearing it. I have it doubled over and then through the fold . I really like it and it is so warm, and not bad either.

Yup, that's me wearing the scarf.

Wow sis, you finally did it. Worked with the Homespun yarn and made yourself a fabulous scarf. YOU go girl!

I am also not a fan of homespun but sometimes it has its uses and it seems you have found one. Nice scarf and nice model!
