So don't take anything for granted, stand outside in the rain. An excuse, you know I planned it. Every ending ends all the same...

Thank you everyone!

It is very very simple, because that's all I know how to do.

The body of the scarf is knitted in garter stitch, because I'm fast at that (even if the only thing I know how to do is knit rectangles!).

The cookies and eyes were solid circles using single crochet.

Then I stitched chocolate chips on the cookies with a dark brown yarn, then sewed the circles to the scarf.

I bought "Happy Hooker" at the beginning of the swap -- I learned to knit (well, as much as I've learned) from "Stitch and Bitch", and it was so clear I was sure I could pick up crochet from "Happy Hooker". Not so. *lol* I tried and tried to figure out the instructions for crocheting circles and it just wasn't happening, so a couple weeks later I went back to the bookstore and got a kids learn to crochet book. I was able to figure it out from that. Ha ha! Now I think "Happy Hooker" will make more sense, which is good because I got a couple patterns to try to figure out. :>

So do you think its easier to learn knitting than crochet? When I see the 2 needles and all the loops, i looks so much harder, but I've been doing simple crochet since I was little, and have a hard time following any patterns, and I want to make cuter stuff.
