because i needed another scarf

really, i swear (*cough*). ok, so i didn’t, but i started this scarf last winter and then abandoned it for months, so i thought it was time to finish it off. there was just enough yarn left to make a matching earwarmer as well as a long chain for the cone christmas trees i plan to make as soon as i have a chance to get to michael’s for the foam cones.

i learned several years ago that if you alternate rows of garter stitch, it makes a cool coil-like stretchy pattern. i think this is the third scarf i have made with this general concept – one infinity scarf and this is the second cowl. the earwarmer uses the same idea and is made so that it stretches to fit. i think it would be cool to make a hat with this design also, maybe that will go on the “someday” list.

nice and warm

About Liv

i have a lot of hobbies. i cook and bake – usually, from scratch. i paint, though not as often as I would like. i love to make pottery on the wheel, though this hobby fell by the wayside while I was in grad school. now that I’ve finished, I’m looking forward to potentially getting back into ceramics and devoting more time and energy to all of my hobbies. my mom got me hooked on refinishing garage sale or thrift shop furniture into beautiful, rich pieces for the home. and my true love is crochet – i love the feeling of achievement in taking a ball of yarn and a hook and turning it into a beautiful afghan or purse or set of coasters. in some way or another, all of these hobbies center around making things – thus, creation nation.
