So, yesterday I made the mistake of bragging about a beautiful day and we have had rain ever since! It made for a good day to watch football with the boys and finish some projects.
The first order of business was to finish the 2nd granny circle so I have a matching set (one for the other nightstand if I can talk my husband into having it on his side of the bed too). I love these!! I have all of the yarn set up for the next one…autumn colors for the kitchen table 🙂
The second order of business was to complete my cancer ribbon scarf. It’s more like a neck warmer than a scarf, but it does the same job.
Since I am a survivor, I decided to accessorize for the Susan G. Komen Race For The Cure next week.
If you have never worked with novelty yarn, it isn’t very fun because it is a little difficult to see what you are doing, but it’s not too bad for a small project. This worked up fairly quickly and I am really pleased with the result.
cancer ribbon scarf:
1 small skein eyelash or boa yarn
This is simply 20 dc wide every row until you run out of yarn.
row 1: turn and dc in 4th chain from hook, then dc in each ch
row 2: ch 3 turn and dc in each to end
center button about 5 inches from one end
use any space between dc for the button hole, whatever is comfortable
Thanks for stopping by!
