Hollywood Scarf

As I was laying in bed the other evening, trying my best to go to sleep, an idea for a scarf popped into my head. Some people hate it when that happens. I on the other hand come up with many ideas this way, and I hope to God I will still remember it when I wake up! Well, I did!

I call this my "Hollywood Scarf" because of all the bling-bling it has. I used about 7 different yarns in it, and the fringe is all in ribbon yarns! I had to put down my crochet project to get this thing cranked out. I have a hard time focusing on one thing when I have these ideas in my head. It was a nice little distraction from my skirt project...but trust me when I say I am working on granny squares again every evening when I get home from work!


I hope you can get an idea from this picture of all the yarns.



It is longer than I had planned...but that's okay!



Now how bling is this fringe!

I have a lot of yarn left over, so I am already contemplating my next scarf. I am thinking it won't be as long, the tassels will be longer, and I will use a stockinette stitch in portion of it. This one may make it into my etsy shop.

For now, I'm returning to my granny square skirt project...hope to get it close to being finished very soon...pictures to come!

Love it! Was that all stash yarn, or did you pick it all out just for this scarf? I love the variety of colors and textures. Very nice!

I found your blog about an hour ago (from the grannysquare flikr group) and am totally loving it! Your color choices are fantastic... I'm loving that I've found someone who's even less afraid of it than me!
