First ruffle scarf: finished!

The finished product! It's soft and shiny (but not ZOMGSHINEE), and quite warm.

Pardon the me in this pic. I don't have a...mannequin just-head thingy.


Not that these two came out all that bad, though. :)

First ruffle scarf

I finished this awhile ago, but I'm staggering the posts to share the fun.

Apologies for my absence this month. It's been kind of crazy.

I really isn't my thing, but I'm making it, and will only be wearing it when I model it.


Soft and shiiiny. :)

The first completed end.


Saturday, December 11, 2010 Project is a go!

I figure I'd do more good with $50 worth of yarn (though I've spent less than that so far) than if I just made a $50 donation, so I asked the NTAFund people what colors I should use and they recommended the red, green and blue of their website. So I went out and bought yarn. I have two sets each of these:

NTA Fund - dark blue/green/red

NTA Fund - bright blue/pink/green

And I have this medium shade of red:

NTA Fund - medium red

...and it is red, though the flash makes it look orangey. I couldn't find blue and green in the same intensity so I'm off to the Caron website in the hope that they make the right colors in Simply Soft.

Time to get to work! I'll make both ruffled and flat scarves. Since they're for a good cause the ruffled scarves will be $30 and the flat ones will be $15.

White Fuzzy Scarf

I'm actually rather proud of this pic, and a few others with me in them that I'll be posting over the next several days. Apparently I'm not nearly as ugly as I usually think I am. ;)

Also, these are really, really fun to make. I just wish that I could buy the fun fur yarn in bulk because it's so pricey and you get so little of it! (compared to, say, a giant skein of boucle)
