I've been throwing myself headfirst into projects lately as a way to get my mind off of some things. So I've picked up finger knitting, something I've never heard of until mieljolie's wonderful post
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261761.msg2934025#msg2934025

So far I've made about a zillion of these things, these are all that I have left after giving them away. I also found my scraps from sewing and decided to incorporate them into this project.

The different yarns I used,


The number of scarves left.


So my lesson, boys will not always be there for you, however your craft supplies always will be Smiley

I feel you, hun.  My boyfriend of over 2 years left me yesterday and now I have a gazillion yards of fabric for boy-catching dresses lol  Keep your head up, sweetie, and we'll both find someone amazing one day  Wink

Very cool projects. One day the RIGHT boy will be there for life and it's that boy that will help you laugh at all the other stupid boys in your past. (I'm a newlywed that dated A LOT of the wrong guys, look at it as narrowing down what you DON'T want in a man.)
