I've Been Busy Making Scarves For Orders

I have gotten orders for scarves from some of my co-workers. I have made 2 with this yarn so far. It is Red Heart Super Saver and the color is Zebra. It is a nice variegated that works up quite nicely. I have orders for 2 more with this particular yarn.

I also have orders for 2 more scarves. Then I will be making a scarf and a shawl (and I am not quite sure what else) for a friend that will be going through chemo and radiation. I am also trying to get my Cincinnati Bengals scarf finished. I've put it on hold while making all the scarves for orders and then making Viv's things. Hopefully I will be able to get it done soon. I'm trying to work on it a little here and there.

Here is a scarf I made using Lion Brand Boucle.

I have quite a bit of this type of yarn, and have never used it before. It took a little getting use to, but all in all it wasn't too bad to work with. I have heard horror stories about using this type of yarn, but since I used a big hook (size N), it wasn't too bad. Now to decide what to make with all of the other skeins and colors I have.

Scarves I Made For A Winter Scarf Swap

I was in a winter scarf swap over at Crochetville. Here are the scarves that I made for my swap partner. Now that she has received them, I can post pictures of
them. I couldn't decide what pattern I wanted to use for her scarf, so I started working up a few. I just kept going, and when they were all finished, I decided to send them all to her. She said on her survey that she really likes purple, so I made them all with at least some purple in them.

I really enjoy making scarves, because they work up pretty fast. They make great gifts, because in my opinion, if you live where it is cold in the winter, you can never have too many scarves!!
