DazzleMea's Insanely Soft Sloppy Scarf


It’s almost complete. I just need to finish the edging on it. It’s insanely soft and super warm!

So far, this is my favorite yarn to work with. Because it’s so feathery, it leaves room for error. However, it is easy to accidentally make an increase using the knit right loop…So, be careful. I made this mistake. I started out with 29 stitches and ended with 31 (hence “Sloppy Scarf”). Also, it tends to stick to the crevices of your hand if it’s even the slightest bit moist. But despite it’s flaws, I *heart* how this stuff works up.

I plan on posting more pictures of it when it's 100% complete, but I just couldn't resist showing it off now.

The rest of the braclets...

I made our friends little girl 3 more bracelets. Well, wait. A total of four. But I gave one to her mother since they share the same birthday and matched her outfit perfectly. The one you see below is what I gave to her mother.

I made another pink one but without the black trim. I used two different sized white buttons and lined the bracelet with them. I, sadly, don't have a picture of that one.

The second one I made was a blue ombre cuff. I knit in 5 beads representing each year of her life...and one birthday cake bead in the center. I plan on re-knitting it each year. Again no picture.

I made another one using red yarn and sewed seed beads onto it. I was going to make 3 more and use them as party favors for the girls, but never got around to it. I got too busy in helping get things ready for the party and keeping the house clean for the hostess.

I do plan on getting pictures the next time I visit them.

I want to make more and sell them online, however it seems everywhere requires you have a credit card. An' we ain't got one of doze.

How have I not gone completely crazy, yet?
