More Stripe-ity Scarf-ity!

Yes, more stripe-ity knitting here.  I have been meaning to knit up a scarf for my sister in law for quite awhile, and this past week I decided that this one is hers.  I have to say, of all these striped scarves I've done, I like this one the best-est!  I think it's the red and burgundy in it. 

I still have a good stash of variegated yarns, which I find myself adding to every time I hit one of the craft stores, so I am sure there will be more stripe-ity knitting in my future!

I think she could wear it with just about anything!

Laura's wrap is in the mail and on its way to her.  I can't wait until she gets it, I am so anxious to see how she likes it.  I was able to get some pictures of it on me.  It looks great on the dress form, but I wanted to see it on a human body, with real hips!  LOL

Front View - Wrapped Around Shoulders

Back View - Wrapped Around Shoulders 

Wrapped at Waist - Buttoned at Shoulders

I really like it wrapped with the buttons at the shoulders.  Front view looks the same either way wrapped.  I actually wore it around the house for a little while and it stays in place nicely, and boy is it warm!! 

What next?  A couple of snowmen are on the way.  I had a girl at work ask me for a snowman.  Well, it's just as easy to make a couple of them at a time as it is just one...and I can't wait to share because they are CUTE!

I'm really enjoying reading your blog. Your creations remind me so much of the 60's and the crochet my Aunt did. I also really LOVE the wrap! It's gorgeous!
