before i go into the particulars of the scarf i pictured yesterday, i must give props to Debbie and Jamie. they were on my team last Baking Gals round and they made some beautiful cookies for our soldier Amie.
Ranger Cookies, Nibbly Cookies from Alice Medrich's Bittersweet but also from Dessert First, and biscotti from the Cookie Book..Got Milk? by Peggy Cullen. thanks ladies!
the blue scarf was originally going to be for my grandmother. however, as i was examining the end result, i was trying to guess what she'd complain about: the holes and light weight yarn. the scarf wouldn't keep her warm. so i decided insted to gift it to my sister Pam who turns 18 next week. i used a ripple scarf pattern. naturally, i flubbed but not so much that one could tell, especially with the fringe. i really liked the pattern, and the yarn i used was Caron soft in a baby blue. i'll make this scarf again, eventually.
