From Skein To Scarf

My friend Kate over at The Garden Bell, had a drawing for some of the hand dyed yarn she creates.  I was the lucky recipient of one of her skeins of beautiful yarn.  It arrived on Saturday in the mail, and this morning I started on my Twirly Whirly scarf.

I saw the pattern from  this blog.   From Tangled Happy, it led me to another blog, the name of which escapes me at the moment, but if you go to Tangled Happy, you will find the post that leads you to the Twirly Whirly scarf.  
  Oh my gosh, I loved how this scarf came out.  It coiled into perfect little ringlets, like the back of my granddaughter Claire's hair, as I continued on crocheting.  You can wear it so many ways.  Just loose around your neck, or tied into a sort of ascot.  By the way, it does NOT go with this sweatshirt I am wearing!!  I was just trying it on for pictures.
I tied it onto my dress form.  How do you like it with my wedding gown, circa 1979?
  I loved making this!  Kate, THANK YOU so much!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on it and turn it into something pretty.  I LOVE how it turned out!!!

Time is getting away from me as a storm is due tonight here and still working on packing for our Wednesday departure heading south. Will be glad to get the heck out of here. Been in the single digits way too much already.

LOVED your twirly scarf (yarn is awesome). Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern. I quick ran to Michael's to pick up some 'cheapo' yarn to give it a try. SOOO cute! Yesterday, I went by Knit Affair and picked up some beautiful yarn and am almost done -- it's going to be gorgeous!

Blessings,

Sharon
