So I went to France recently was was AMAZED at how many yarn shops I found myself in... Needless to say, I bought a lot of yarn home to America with me, this was one of the projects that came out of that perfect stash:
Braided Scarf
-literally just three long stockinette stitched lines braided together and binded at the ends. Super Easy knit, but when you have to knit the same thing 3 times you kind of want to kill yourself.

And a close up, with me pouting for some reason Cheesy :

This is one of the fingerless gloves I made from my other French Yarn. I've made a hat with this in a previous post, for my boyfriend, and had a lot of left over yarn, so I started these up, just kind of making it up as a went. They're weird, but I like them. They're going to be nice in the spring:

Hope you like! (And I'm a comment whore, so please- if you have input, I would love to hear!)

I really like that scarf, super cute; maybe there's a way to spice up the pattern so it's not quite so tedious...

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

Aside from the fact that your fingerless glovies and scarf are totally awesome.... I totally have that same shirt, but in brown. It is one of my favorites!

Pretty scarf! Love that color.

Daisy_a_Flower, 3 different colors would look something like this:



I did a couple of these for Christmas, in different colors and textures.
