|Collage of the first two knotted scarves that I made.|
My sister, Diane Bennett introduced me to these fun accessories when she came to visit at Christmas 2011. She was wearing a pretty white scarf with metallic accents that she had made. She first saw them at a craft show and after purchasing one, she decided to try her hand at making them. Her success inspired me and this is the result of my first attempt.
I wish that my camera was better, or maybe just my photography skills, oh well. I picked up 7 skeins of yarn/fibers at Walmart last night. Who knew that even Walmart carries such great yarn? Certainly not me, since I neither knit nor crochet. The woman who checked out my order kept raving about how beautiful the colors were. I have to agree, I sure had fun picking them out.

I picked out the two Bernat Boa fibers first and then selected other yarns and fiber that would coordinate with them.

|Lion Brand Fun Fur in Chocolate|
My next choice was the Lion Brand Fun Fur in Magenta and Chocolate.

Then I wanted something with a little more weight and that was more "yarny". So after a lot of hemming and hawing; i.e. another 20 minutes of picking up and putting down a multitude of different yarns, I selected Lion Brand Hometown USA yarn in Portland Wine and Oakland Black. I really like the thick, but soft look and feel of this yarn.

My last selection was another Lion Brand yarn: Homespun in Ambrosia. I love the soft, twisty, and variegated look of this yarn.

Anyway, I had a lot of fun playing around with these yarns and fibers. I can't wait to make some more. I do want to go to Michaels' and get some more yarn. They have a great 50% off sale right now, yeah! Thanks, Diane for the inspiration! I want to see more of the scarves that you made.
