I seldom make anything for "me".
Yesterday, I decided it was time to make myself a new hat and scarf.
For Valentine's Day, Big Daddy bought me some absolutely fabulous yarn that I've been mooning over for a month or more. He bought 2 skeins each of Caron's Simply Soft yarn in the colors Stick & Stones and Sunset. I used the Stick & Stones yarn yesterday. I love the muted colors of it and it's sooooo soft.
Here's the hat I made. I used The Every Day Beanie pattern but changed it up a bit because I have a "big" head. I also added the flower embellishment. It's not showing up very well in this photo though.
Here's a better look at the hat. I just look like "crap". Oh well. It's not about me, it's about the "hat".
Then I made a Curly Fries Scarf to go with the hat. I LOVE this pattern. Seriously. I wore my original Curly Fries Scarf to school Wed. and I was tickled pink to be wearing it. :)
Here are the scarf and hat together. The lighting is so bad this time of year. Sorry. Crummy photos again. I even tried using my good camera as well as the camera on the phone. Nothing was turning out right. Oh well. I love these two items anyway. :)
