Fiber Arts Friday: Stripey Scarf

A few weeks ago Vivian over at Bits and Pieces gave away a scarf she made.  It was her "car project."  Only working on it while waiting or being a passenger.

I love the idea of a "car project" to make those few minutes here and there useful, but I'm rarely in my car anymore.... or on an airplane for that matter.  So I have a cubby with a go-bag for each in-progress-project and just grab which ever one suits my fancy when I think I may have some waiting or passenger time.

Anyway, I am the lucky recipient of Vivian's beautiful work.  It has made an appearance at a couple of Christmas parties already and will be keeping me warm while doing farm chores this winter.


She was also kind enough to send some of her yarn scraps.  I had told her I was wanting to make something of a yarn quilt, but didn't have enough yarn in similar weights.

But now I have a little more to work with.... it might be time to start putting a real project plan together.  :-)


Happy Fiber Arts Friday and I hope you're having a wonderful Holiday season.  :-)

How wonderful! What weight scraps do you need? I have tons of scraps in all kinds of weights and colors. Always wondering what to do with them. Have a Happy New Year!

Good for you for receiving that cute stripes scarf.

And great to get more yarns, too.

LOve it! I got one of her scarves last spring and it's been keeping mine and my daughter's neck warm so far this winter.

I look forward to seeing your yarn quilt. I made one with granny squares, and I absolutely loved it.
