Roosters & Scarves!

I have taken a little "log cabin afghan" break this week to knock out a couple projects, one of those being an order for some of these little guys.  I had forgotten how much fun they are to work up, and so cute, too!  I think I'll make some more in the next few weeks to go on a craft table this fall.

I also have finished up some scarves that I have been working on while I have been crocheting on my log cabin afghan.
One ruffle scarf done!  Believe it or not I used some yarn I bought a Big Lots for $1...yes I said it...$1!  I have quite a little stash of it, too.  I love it.  It is so soft, and the yarn is a lace weight, so it is light and airy.  I do LOVE these ruffle scarves!
One stripe-ity scarf done!  I used Lion Brand "Amazing" yarn in four different colors, changing through out the scarf.  It is all in garter stitch.  So simple and so easy!!  The colors are truly "amazing"!!
One knit scarf done!  I had actually started this quite some time ago, and decided that it needed to be finished up.  It's a simple one, just a k2, p2 pattern.  I used a chenille yarn from Sugar & Cream.  The yarn really worked up into a neat pattern.

So now, what next?  Well, I think I may get another scarf started so I have something to take with me to knitting group, and get back with completing my log cabin.  I can't wait for the big reveal!!!

I hope everyone has a great week!!!

Oh, Iove those Roosters! Very cute.
And your scarves are gorgeous- my fav is the ruffle. It looks very snuggly!

Those roosters look amazing; so colourful and cute! Love the scarves too and what a bargain with the yarn for the ruffled one! :-)

Your projects are beautiful, as always! Love those roosters. I go back to them every now and then and they're always even more fun than I remember.

Your scarves turned out beautiful. Love the Roosters too. I'll have a reveal for you tomorrow night made with $1 Big Lots yarn.

Love love LOVE those roosters. I think I need to pop over to your shop and grab that pattern. They would make PERFECT little ornament gifts for the holidays this year.

The ruffly scarf is quite wonderful, too. My friends found through blogging and ravelry are going to have me convinced to start knitting if I can get my two left hands to work together after all, aren't they? (LOL)
