Last year I knitted a hat for my friend Michele with a variegated turquoise yarn (see 11/11/19 post The Ball of Yarn (which eventually became a hat)):
I had another skein of the yarn remaining so I thought Michele might need a scarf to match her hat.
At first I knitted a partial scarf but I was not enjoying the process for some reason. I had it as WIP at the same time I began my first granny square blanket, rediscovering the joy of crocheting. I decided to rip out the knit stitches and start over and crochet the scarf instead.
Here I am working on the scarf with Mike the Miniature Schnauzer supervising:
Is he supervising or is he trying to get pet? I suspect he wants the project out of my hands so I can lay my hands on him!
And here is the scarf completed – I added fringe to the edges to jazz it up a bit:
Michele loves to read and since this scarf was also her birthday gift I decided to wrap it in a stack of used books I gathered for her while thrifting and building my home library (see post Curating a Home Library):
She’s already received her gift in the mail so I can now share this project in a post (smile).
