Happy New Year Skull Scarf

Happy New Year my faithful readers! I have a feeling 2011 is going to be a great year. I have so many ideas in this warped brain of mine for some new wicked crochet creations.
I was able to start the year off by completing a new skull scarf. This is made with some great yarn. The light green is hand spun alpaca wool from animals raised right here in Oregon. The variegated color I used for the skulls and fringe is hand painted merino from New Mexico. I just love the bright almost neon colors of this scarf. You will definitely stand out in a crowd while wearing this skully beauty.

Lately I've been sketching my ideas before I actually start the project . Here's the sketch of the skull scarf when it was only a twinkle in my eye.
Yeah....The scarf looks much better.

 Thanks to my lovely daughter for being a good sport and modeling for me. If it wasn't for her my cats would have to model. And I'm sure that wouldn't thrill them in the least.


  1. Adorable! I'm trying to bring back crochet too! Crocheting isn't just for old ladies anymore. I just took up crochet, have the book "Happy Hooker" on order, so hopefully soon I can start mastering the art really soon.

  2. Candice I LOVE the blog! You are awesome. The Happy Hooker book is a good one to get started with. You should also get a good crochet stitch book. I would recommend "The Crochet Stitch Bible" It has TONS of stitches and easy to follow directions. I refer to mine all the time while designing. I look forward to seeing your crochet progress. Keep on Hookin!

  3. I love this! I would definitely buy it if I weren't do poor. D:
