Fiber Arts Friday: Scarves Anticipating a Change in Seasons

It's Fiber Arts Friday at Alpaca Farm Girl's blog. After a summer hiatus, I am back in action for the soon coming fall season. I've been busy knitting and crocheting scarves using a wool soy blend yarn. The yarn is soft and silky. I especially like how this yarn crochets into a thick and soft scarf.
I designed this blue variegated diamond lace scarf using one of my favorite crochet motifs. I love the flow of blues throughout this yarn. I'll soon be listing this scarf for sale in my Etsy shop.

My knit scarf is worked in simple garter stitch on large needles which gives a lightness to the soft wool soy yarn. This variegated yarn of plum, pink red and brown makes for a richly colored scarf to warm your neck.

So, my hands are busy creating scarves at the moment. Happy fiber arting!

Love the blue! Is the pattern available somewhere? That is super cool, and I'm always looking for something that doesn't require a lot of yarn.

Thanks! It's my original crochet pattern which I hope to have up on Etsy some day!
