Scarf Day

Do you ever get a perfect hand lotion and you sparingly use it just in cast you can never get it again? Mine would have to be Bath & Body Works Sea Island Cotton. I love this stuff and it's a thicker lotion so when it goes on it doesn't leave your hands or feet all oily. I use it on my feet at night also. It also has a nice subtle smell to it. Mmmmm smelly stuff.

Today I deem Scarf day. I made a few scarfs for myself over the last couple of months and I have actual photos of said scarfs.
I put them on Diane (my dress form). She likes wearing my scarfs at least they don't make her neck itch like they do mine. The first is the Debbie Mumm Traditions 2x2 Rib Scarf I wrote about yesterday I did these on a size 11 needles. I love the colors in this scarf a lot. The next one is Jo-Anns Sensations in the color Lime doubled with Dolcetto with size 15 needles garter stitch. So soft but itchy, itchy, itchy. I can wear these over the top of a coat but not close to my neck. I am extremely sensitive on my neck otherwise I'm o.k with wool. The last one is Truffles in Purple, Pink, and Blue (can't find a link for a store) knitted on a size 10 1/2 in garter stitch.
I love making scarfs there simple, and fast.

Well I am going to make dinner Have a great day. :)

Well Thank You. It was the yarn really, it has this wonderful way of coloring striping as you go. I love blues in any form. :)
