Crafty Tuesday - The Scarf!

I finished the scarf over the holidays and I think it turned out very well. I chose a black tweed yarn as well as a pretty lime green that picks up the green in the tweed. I tend to drift towards green these days... Not sure why, maybe because it's so brown and dead outside. Who knows.

So, I snapped this picture on my little white stool but it doesn't properly represent the length and fabulousness of my scarf does it?

I was going to try and snap a picture of myself modeling the scarf - but decided to spare you folks because I was having a seriously bad hair day (not that that's anything new). Muffin was busy but Louis was free! In fact, I think he looks quite dapper in my scarf.

The look on his little kitty face is priceless. I believe he's thinking something along the lines of: "If I were younger I'd find a way out of this damn thing. Since I can't, I will solace myself with the fact that you fill find vomit on your carpet in the near future." Ah, sweet sweet kitty love.

Now-a-days I'm working on a baby afghan for a friend who is due in June. It's about half-way through and makes a wonderful lap warmer on a freezing January night. I also spent a ludicrous amount of money on some froo-froo yarn that was 40% off! I see some fancy scarves in the near future! Stay tuned!

Also, ONLY ONE MORE NIGHT UNTIL LOST!!! I'm getting seriously hyped up. Can you tell?
