Vivian's scarf

My friend Vivian's birthday was a couple of days ago and I was determined to make her an awesome, useable, very cool homemade present. Of course I was going to crochet her something--like I would do anything else!

Well, I found a very cute pattern in my tried and true Stich n' Bitch: Happy Hooker book, and I altered it slightly to make it more frilly. I also added my very favorite little crochet flowers (not fleurchons, PR fans) with a splash of glitzy sequins in the center.

Hubby and I went to Viv's house last night to give her her presents, and I'm so glad she liked it! I have to admit, I almost wanted to keep it for myself!

Here are the results!

That is a great looking scarf, I love the colors! Thanks for the comment on my blog. It didn't take too long to get used to the plastic "yarn" but I did have to cut more, I think my tension is a little tighter than most.

Thanks Naomi! I added your blog to my "list of blogs to check out" because as soon as I found it, I knew we were kindered spirits.

I really like the plastic bag crochet idea...I think I'm going to give that a whirl. :-)
