Another crazy scarf

Dear Shayne,

Tap! Tap! Is this thing on?

Well, we have been neglecting this blog lately, haven't we? I don't know about you, but I have also been neglecting crafting. Which is No. Good.

But I did make another scarf! As I am now addicted to weaving, I used this handspun yarn to weave a wild scarf:

I only had 87 yards of it, so I used simpler sock yarn I had for the warp.

It went further than it would have if I had knit it (weaving uses less yarn than knitting! Yay!) but I still should have done better math, as it ended up a bit short -- around 5 feet long.

So I am now hatching a plan to attach some buttons to it and make it sort of cowl-y type of thing. Regardless, I love how it turned out. This yarn is awesome.

Sequins! Pom-pons! Yes!

LOVE the pom poms and sequins! No crafting going on over here either. Lots of TV watching :(
