Spring Green


Two more friend birthdays...two more scarves/cowls.  Apparently it's my signature gift (yes, that is me trying to make it sound better)?  There are just so many great patterns out there and I can't resist them!  In fact, I haven't hooked the same pattern twice.

So, last month I showed my two different (but very similar) skeins of green yarn and today I thought I'd show you what became of them.  EJ is modeling the Queen Anne's Lace Scarf above and below is the finished Cardiff Cowl.


I didn't get a chance to have one of my models try it out, so was thrilled when Karri posted this pic for me to steal...hee, hee.  I think it looks great on her...especially with the navy stripes.

I'm thinking I need to make myself a cowl (or start selling them given that I can't seem to stop making them).  I am still building my list of cowls I love, but haven't made yet...1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6...

Talk about quick yet cute and practical gifts! That's the way to go! I love the shade of green, it's such a hard color to find just the right shade sometimes.

I love that scarf. I keep seeing it everywhere and just thinking about making it. It looks really cozy in that yarn!

I adore my scarf!!!! Although I think it may look better on cutie patootie EJ than me :-)

LOVE your idea about selling them! It's definitely something you love to do and what's better than doing something you love AND making money? I say go for it!!

Both look great, I love the greens :)

It definitely is about time you made one for yourself too!

Jackie said...

After you make one for yourself I will buy one!! I love those cowls... 2 and 3 are my faves ;) I saw a cute young couple at church and she had one on and instead of paying attention I kept wondering if I could look cute like that :)

I think your cowl/scarf business could go crazy! Especially if our weather stays winter!! go for it!

I love both, but especially the cowl. I need to make myself one I think

heather said...

Oh you guys are too sweet, but you need to develop your own patterns before you can sell them! :-)

Love the green. Love the cowl. I've been needing some inspiration for my next projects. Have a good weekend.

Love the green you used. Cowls can be addictive. For me it's always been hats - I can't seem to make enough. I like the Queen Anne's lace scarf - so pretty.

This post makes me want to cast on for a cowl!

The green is wonderful and I love the Queen Ann's Lace!

Mmm, spring green! I love the Queen Anne's Lace scarf---I've been eying that pattern myself for a while now, and yours is lovely. How was it to crochet?

I just almost-finished a cowl in giiiiant bulky yarn, but it's so huge I may have to frog it, sadly. I can wear it as a tube top sweater!

So beautiful! I think 'signature' is a great way to phrase it :)

The scarf and cowl are both great - Id love to receive either!!! Loving the green... Jxx

This is a really pretty set, I love the colour of wool you have used for them too :)

ohmygoodness- how much would you charge a biz girl for a green blanket like that scarf? I would LOVE that for newborn photography!

I love your scarves. They are awesome!
