I actually did my hair and make-up today, so I took some time to get some updated pictures of my “Roserock Ripple Scarf” and my “Sugar Plum Neckwarmer”. By the way, I also go my hair cut short again this week. I just really prefer it short. I have promised myself to keep it short by actually getting it trimmed regularly.
The “Roserock Ripple Scarf” has been a really successful design and I am so glad for that. I really love this scarf. It is beaded, with the beads strung onto the yarn before you begin stitching. It is made in a sock-weight yarn, and is a perfect design for the awesome self-striping sock yarn that you have in your stash, or have been drooling over at your LYS.
The “Sugar Plum Neckwarmer” can be warn as a cowl or as a scarf. It is made with a smooth worsted weight yarn and a ruffle yarn such as Red Heart Boutique Ribbons. This is a sparkly, ruffly, dressy, fun accessory. I’ve seen ruffle yarns used to make the basic ruffle scarf, and those are fun, but I’ve had fun exploring other uses for it, and this is the first idea that came to mind.
While I was trying to take these pictures in my back yard, this is what Mr. AC and the girls were up to. Mr. AC has been gone for 2 weeks for work, so it has been so nice to have a nice family day today. I’m so glad for the beautiful weather and a wonderful family! I am so blessed!
What are stitching today? If you are working from one of my patterns, I’d love to see pictures on my Facebook page!
