On the left is a Queen Anne's Lace scarf, and on the right is a winter headband.  They'll go along with some mittens I crocheted from the same yarn a few months back.  Not the best pic.


The yarn is Tequila Sunrise which I dyed with Kool-Aid.  The single yarn on the left is what I used for the scarf, and the two-ply is what I used for the headband and the aforementioned mittens.

 Grin  The yarn does have a smell to it -- maybe a hint of Kool Aid but also the lavender-scented Eucalan I soaked it in when I set the twist.  Either way, it's yummy.

Thank you for the nice comments!

tiffi_333, I agree that it would be pretty in off white!  I've only seen these done in colors, but off white would be nice.
