Scarf-a-rama-a-go-go

Oh yeah, it's scarf-givin'-time again! The easiest and most-loved gift for friends of yarnies are scarves. I believe that one person can never have too many scarves. This year I decided to abbreviate the long scarf into a Scarflette. Who needs all those long ends flapping around and getting stuck in elevator doors? The loose weave of the scarf with the added button makes this scarflette adjustable! I crocheted a few of these babies for some co-workers.

Crocheted Scarflettes

About a week ago I came upon the Bainbridge Scarf via Ravelry. Yes! Another quick to knit or crochet item for gift-giving. I've made a few of these so far and given them as birthday gifts. They have been very well received. I cruised the Ravelry archives for the leaf-tie version, pictured below.

The "elevator doors" comment does make me wonder if there's a story there!

I've decided to jump on the scarflette/cowl/neck sock bandwagon for a present and for myself. And I am almost done with the holiday knitting but I might have trouble getting decent buttons without a quick trip to the mainland. Eeek!

Your scarves and -lettes are so colorful.

I feel buried under my projects and am a little behind. Guests are coming this weekend and that means cleaning up my crafting holding area aka the guest room. I guess I have to start working some magic in that room tomorrow. Sewing will have to resume on Sunday. Bah!
