Just check this out!  I call it "Tropical Waves Half Granny Wrap".  My niece looks so cute in it.
And here's a view from the flip side.  These colors are a little "out of the box" for me, but they did come together nicely.  I had a request a couple months ago for a meditation shawl in these colors.  After knitting on it for quite some time I decided I was not at all happy with it.  I didn't like the way the colors changed and told my gal that I wanted to scrap it and crochet her something.  I'm not sure if she will like this, and if so, I have an idea floating around in my head of a knit shawl. 

I also finished up a scarf this weekend.  It will be just perfect to wrap up in this winter, it's guaranteed not to be scratchy, the boucle yarn has made it very soft against the skin.
So, you like?  The fun fir mixed with the boucle make it look as if the ends were real fur!
I so enjoy knitting these scarves up.  I guess it's because I get to change colors so much, and I like the graphic patches of black.  I'm not sure yet what will become of this scarf, maybe gifted at Christmas or go into my etsy shop.  And since all my knit and crochet projects are completed I'm thinking of starting another!

All in all it's been a productive weekend.  Busy, but productive.  Today I went to my brother's house to make some cards with my sis-in-law!  We had a blast and I have a couple of pics I wanna share with y'all!

This is a pumpkin card I made.  All I did was rubber stamp the leaves and the pumpkin and water colored them, then cut them out and pop-dotted them on the rust background and added some ribbon.  It turned out quite nicely!
Here are a couple of "girlfriend" cards.  Very simple and very cute!

I have one more thing to share before I go.  My brother has gotten very creative with the back patio this year!  It's lush and green and full of color.  I must say, I am quite impressed!  Just check out these flowers he planted.
Now how neat is that!  He planted these flowers in an old worn out pair of boots!  I love it!

Everyone be good and try to have a good week!  I'm outy for now!

The scarf and the wrap are beautiful. I love the colors. I have plans to sign up for the scarf of the month workshop at common threads in August. The scarf is beautiful. The scarf is from the scarf style pattern book I think. I really enjoy common threads and Judy is a great help with all things about knitting.
