My Scarf

LOOKIE!!!

Don't look at me, but at the scarf I'm holding on to. Isn't it the most awesome scarf in the whole entire world? You know why I'm holding on to it? Because I'm not going to let anyone take it from me, and if you try you're going to have to take on me.

It won't be pretty either, beehotch.

Here are the reasons why this is the most awesome scarf in the whole entire world. First off, it's one of my very favorite colors. Second, I love the weight of the yarn. Third, I totally dig that it's handmade. Fourth, it's the perfect length. I can either wrap it or wear it unwrapped with a brooch. Do people still call them brooches or am I really sounding like a 90 year old woman right now?

The biggest reason why it's now the scarf that I make never take off, is that
Kathleen made it for me. Yep, the very same adorable Kathleen that hangs around this place. She made a scarf with her own two little hands. For me! I'm assuming she used her hands, but who knows, she's probably talented enough to knit with her toes.

Anyway, this is one of the sweetest gifts I've ever received in my life. Thank you, Kathleen and great big hugs to you. I LOVE the scarf. LOVE it! So, you just take your bad self and rock on with those knitting needles.


I will now resume my status quo of being non-perky, cynical and generally bitchy.

Take Care,
Babs

  4. Oh, I love scarves and that one looks to be the perfect length (as you say). I have probably 20 scarves all stuck up in my coat closet that I wear like fashion accessories, but only about 2-3 that are really great.

    Scarves are better than an umbrella in the wind *and* they can keep your ears and nose warm in a pinch.

  5. 'tis a beaut. That is a really great colour too. I've just finished knitting a big honkin' blanket for my baby and now I'm going to start a striped (eek!) scarf for Zoe.
    Nice work kat!

    I suppose you're gonna be expecting all of us to knit you scarves now.

    And your head really does look like you've been to an amateur acupuncturist. Perhaps somebody needs to knit you a hat.

    Kathleen:
    Nice work on the scarf. When are the rest of us getting ours?

  7. Are those chopsticks you have back there? Always good to be prepared in case of some freak sushi emergency.

  8. So I am not the only one noticing the spikes heh.

  9. Chap - Yep, Kathleen did an awesome job.

    Lifey - Nice try, but you're not getting my scarf you brazen hussy.

    SI - I can't believe you don't recognize the "Statue of Liberty" when you see her. The spikes are obviously part of my crown and my hand is holding a torch - not a camera.

    OG - I have a thing for scarves, too. And hats. And shoes.

    Dave - That is so sweet! I'm sure Zoe will adore her striped scarf, and I'm even more sure that she'll look adorable wearing it.

    Ex - Yes, I'll take scarves or hats or anything else handmade. Even little scribbles on paper will make me happy.

    Philly - Yes, they're chopsticks. I hate sushi, but they make great weapons.

    Claudia - Obiviously not. And I told everyone NOT to look at me, but the scarf. You people just don't listen very well.

  11. I was only going to say that I am sure if you take your scarf outside and hold it up to the sunshine I'm sure you will see a Jesus face. Something about configuration of the knitting. (evil smile)

  12. I'm so glad you like it. I always worry when I pick out the yarn for someone else.

    It does look nice on you, I must say.

    You are most welcome.

    I like your diadem.

  13. Doc B - I know, I am lucky.

    Retro - Bahahaha. I did as you said. Alas, no Jesus. Not even a virgin or anything.

    Kat - You did a perfect job in picking out the yarn.
