Fall is here--time to break out that B-day present!

For my birthday--in May--my friend Stephanie made me the most lovely of all scarves!! I saw it in a book (can't remember which one now) and asked her to make it sometime, not at all believing that she would, but she did! It's it so fun! It is a scarf with a rose, leaves, and even little thorns--she did a fabulous job at crocheting it! I'm so happy!

Since the weather has been chilly I actually got to wear it one day--I even wore it at work all day. People kept looking at me--not sure if they thought I was crazy for wearing a scarf in the building or were actually admiring the beauty around my neck!

This is a really bad close-up of the flower on the scarf. I like it the best, but it is kind of large and sometimes you have to readjust it to get it to lay right, but I sewed it tighter and that helped a bit. I'm trying to figure out a way to display it on my art wall when it's not being used to keep me warm or as a fashion accessory. Thanks again Stephanie!!!

I'm so glad you like it! I believe the pattern came from the Anti-craft book. But the pattern had a lot of errors, particularly with the rose, so I kinda made it up as I went, which is probably why it doesn't lay very flat!
