Linen Stitch Scarf WIP

I have a lot of fingering weight yarn left over from different projects, and they really don’t go together, with the exception of a linen stitch scarf.  Here’s the yarn I’m working with.

See?  Not really a matching set.  The purple/blue is from Allie’s dress, the brown is from a pair of socks I knit for a friend, and the multi-ball is from a pair of socks that I knit for myself. 

But, when they come together, the effect is quite interesting. 

It’s sort of pretty.  You make the fringe as you go along, so you don’t have any ends to weave in.  Interested in the pattern?  It’s available for $5.00 on Ravelry.  Is it worth $5.00?  I’m not sure, but I don’t mind supporting a knitting pattern designer.

Sweet B’s Custom Boutique

I’ve been a customer of the owner of the hair salon I go to for years.  Recently, her daughter Beth has been crafting these adorable bobby pin hairpieces and headbands.  I bought one and wore it in my sister’s wedding.  I had long since admired them before I bought any of the bobby pins.  Recently, I purchased more since I have been pinning my hair back behind my ears.  The pieces are really well done and are of good quality.  Very nice!

Beth works under the name Sweet B’s Custom Boutique, and sells on Etsy.  You can find her on Facebook, too.  If you are local, you can find her work for sale in Details Hair Design in Ephrata, PA.
