I lovelovelove those.  As usual, amazing work.  Since I live in Winterpeg and have a nice black jacket I'll make 100 00 of these in every color.  Can you say PRESENTS?  Since I'm knitting disabled.  I love the design and color combo of the last one.

OH! This pattern would work for a piano key scarf, too right?!?

geniusNOTatWORK  -  Aw thanks!  I supose you could say they are sexy scarves! 

Katosphere - Thank you!  No - don't put down your knitting needles!  Gosh - I'd give anything to be ABLE to knit!

kp - *blush*  Thank you!  A touch of whimsy - I never thought of them like that - but you I think it is a good description.

Jessies_Girl - Thank-you!

Verrito - Thank you!  I actually hate having my photo taken - but I don't have anyone else close to me to model them =(

daydreamer - Thank you!  The pink and red one makes me think of candy candy candy!

pnk_elefant - Thank you! Cheesy

linzasaurus - Haha!  I'd love to give them away - but a girl's gotta eat somehow. It is either that or I put my cat out to work the streets Tongue

fearnotsomuch - Aw...but!  I really want to learn how to knit and crochet.  I have all these grand ideas and I just cannot do it.  I also want to knit/crochet with kimono fabric strips as well (see...I told you I have grand ideas ;P).

felly - Thank you!  Singapore?  I'd love to visit there one day!  Dimentions for my scarves are 6.5" wide by 74" long (that is the dimention for the pink scarf - I prefer that length the best)

.:popsi:. - Aw shucks!  Thanks so much!  My attempt at crochet was meant to be a square swatch...which magically turned into a triangle without even trying.  I gave it to my cat to play with.

msbeautifull - Thank you! If you make them - post them! =D  I'd love to see!  I'd imagine this pattern would probably work for a piano key scarf.

mariska - haha!  I used to think patchwork was old grannies stuff - but over the last couple of weeks I have a whole new appreciation for it.  I think the key is using spiffy fabric.

xxboheme - Thank you!

wealleatpasta -  you just made me hungry typing your name ;P  Thank you for your lovely words also!

surfergrl311 - Central florida has to get colder than South florida - well...at least I hope it does!

stargirl - Yay!  More people suffering the lack of winter weather! Cheesy  It has never occured to me until I made these to sew a scarf - I've always thought of them in the knitted/crochet realm.

Sad thing - I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to sew for a while - I think I broke my big toe tonight...I tripped over and now it is all swollen and hurts like hell when I move it - I'm not sure if I'll be able to use the foot pedel of my machine or not.  That makes me sad =(
