Gwen’s new fashion scarf

Gwen's fashion scarf made of berroco suede and crystal palace squiggleSo, I’ve been eyeing the berroco suede for months now… trying to figure out what I’d do with it. I finally decided that I wanted to own some. I bought a ball… I also had been eyeing crystal palace’s squiggle. I loved the ends… I had to have it. You know how it goes.

So, I put the two together, decided on 10 stitches and started to knit a scarf. What you end up with is my first fashion scarf, knitted for myself.

I know, I’ve been knitting for myself a bunch lately. I know, there is a baby blanket out there that needs to be finished. But, I knit so many baby sweaters in a row that I’m sick of knitting for others. I’m knitting for me for a while. Besides, I can justify buying yarn (don’t know why, but I can), so I can knit new additions to my wardrobe rather than buy them. Aren’t I sneaky?

I put a close-up in the extended entry for those who are interested! Gwen's fashion scarf made of berroco suede and crystal palace squiggle close up
