The 5 hour circle scarf

Made this gift up quick last night with some Hometown USA (on sale at AC Moore right now!) and big P hook.  I just may have to whip up a few more this week. Its a 64" circle scarf made in a simple single crochet 1, skip 1 pattern. Don't ya just love that mint green?

Pay it forward 2011!

I saw this fabulous scarf a few years ago, but have been waiting for the right time to make it.. and suddenly January 2011 I finally got to it.  On January 3, 2011 I posted this on my Facebook page (I don't want to take all the credit I did see it on someone's page first), but I thought it was a lovely idea and now that its been almost three weeks... I'm done with the first commenter on my list and now onto the next.  
"Pay it Forward 2011: I promise to send something handmade to the first 5 people who leave a comment here. They must in turn post this and send something they make to the first 5 people who comment on their status. The rules are that it must be handmade by you and it must be sent to your 5 people sometime in 2011."
Here is my variation of Nicky Epstein's Irish Rose Scarf which can be found here.
This scarf has sooooo many beautiful flowers, but after making them and placing them, and wrapping myself up in this scarf.  I just couldn't see it being worn that often with all those flowers.  So I knocked it down to one flower and suddenly it becomes your everyday go to wool scarf with a bit a flare.
