Figuring the eight scarf
Oh boy, oh boy! I got a quick hour to myself yesterday. The girls were stringing christmas lights with their grandmother and the baby was sleeping. I decided to use the two gorgeous Japaneese print fabrics I got in Colorado to make Anna Maria Horner's Figuring the 8 scarf. Incidentally the fabrics were both nani IRO double gauze fabrics, one eggplant the other melody sketch both heavenly to the touch. Buying these was a bit of a splurge for me. My justification being that I am always making things for other folks and never for myself. It was worth it though, I have yet to take the scarf off. (Okay, thats not entirely true I didn't sleep in it.) I keep rubbing it on my face, I just can't help it. I did find the length to be a bit much though. I think I'd make it about 10 inches shorter next time.
