Ok, so there is no beyond, but I have made a couple of Infinity scarfs.
This little one was made using one skein of Vanna's Choice in Mustard. The pattern I used was Caron's Bellflower Infinity Scarf. I needed another skein to make it long and able to loop around, but I didn't have one so a short one it is. It's very warm and would have probably been too thick looped around anyway. Has anyone else noticed that Mustard is a popular color right now?
Now for my second one. I made this one in about 4 hours on Friday. The yarn I used is Lion Brands Tweed Stripes in color 206 Woodlands. LOVE this colorway! This was my first time using a self striping yarn and will definitely use it again.
I started out similar to the patter for the Mustard scarf, and changed up the shells a little.
Here's how I did it.
-2 skeins of Lion Brand Tweed Stripes
Start with a chain of 34.
DC in the 4th chain from the hook.
*Skip next two ch's.
2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc in the next ch.
dc in each of the next two ch's.*
Repeat from * to the end. Ending with dc's in last two ch's.
You should have 4 shell clusters and 5 two dc spaces.
ch 3 and turn, dc in next dc.
*in ch 1 space of shell- dc, ch 2, dc
skip to 2 dc's and dc in each.
repeat from * to the end with a dc in the last dc and a dc in the top of the ch 3.
ch 3 and turn, dc in the next dc.
*in ch 2 space of shell-2 dc, ch1, 2 dc
skip to 2 dc's and dc in each.
repeat from * to end with a dc in the last dc and a dc in the top of ch 3.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you reach the desired length. You could leave this as a scarf or sew the two ends together to make a Mobius or Infinity scarf. I hope I explained the instructions well enough, but if not please feel free to leave me a message.
I have dinner simmering away in the Crock Pot, Beef Tips and Gravy. Pammy Sue at Scotty's Place posted the recipe a while back. This is always a hit with my family. Basically you just add a package of beef tips, (I use the large pack, got a lot of mouths to feed here) and 2 cans of Beef Gravy. Throw it in a crock pot on high for 4 hours. I am going to cook some egg noodles and add them to it. Perfect for a chilly day. I am gonna go now and make a Butter Pecan Pound Cake. If you would like the recipe let me know, I will be glad to share.
A yarn ripple, not the bottle. But then again the evening is just starting! I decided to join up with Heather and Lucy's ripple-a-long. Just in case you haven't see or heard about it, all the info is here and here.
I am using leftovers I already have. I am sure I will have to buy more of the Sea Blue. I am using it as a main color and will put another color in between with the hopes of not using the same color twice. The pattern I am using comes from Lemond De Sucrette. Here is a link to her pattern. It is a chart, but very easy to understand. Similar to Attic 24's pattern but with a little more ripple. There is also a Flickr group, go check it out, join up, and start rippling.
This is a pair of shoes I fashioned in my favorite college teams colors. Garnet and Black for the South Carolina Gamecocks. I found the shoes on sale for $10, brought them home, and added polka dot grosgrain ribbon flowers. Go Gamecocks!
Gonna run for now. Time to get in to the ripple for the evening, maybe both kinds!
