When i saw wibit's beautiful scarf (found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=208756.0) i knew i had to make one for myself.  so i did!   Smiley  i didn't follow her tutorial exactly, i altered it a little bit.  i kind of broke it up into sections a little bit.  i used Wool-ease.  i think the color was blue mist?  i don't even remember anymore, but i'm pretty sure it was blue mist.
on to the pictures!


some close ups:

  (this one shows off the color well).

action shot:

(pardon my weird facial expression.  i was getting annoyed at my camera because it wasn't focusing).

P.S. - just incase anyone was wondering, i free-handed the loops.  i tried putting them on something to keep them all the same length, but it just wasn't really working on it, so i just kinda eyeballed it.  it seems to have worked fairly well.    Wink

thanks.   Smiley
i thought it was going to be more difficult than it actually was.  it was a little slow going at first, but once i got the hang of it it went well.
