What's the Big Whup?

Why has it taken me so long to make up my mind about this silly scarf? First, it was this. (Family brought me back to reality; it was a bit weird-looking.)

Then, it was this. I love the look of this pattern (my so-called scarf) but - and this is my second time attempting it - I simply can't manage to persist past a few rows. I'm just not feelin' the lurve.

So, on to this:

The multi-directional scarf. I think this is the pattern the yarn was made for :) Love it. (Note: I have been referring to the color as Geranium when in fact it is called Regency. Oops.)

One thing this process has accomplished is help me to see that what I appreciate most in a pattern - interesting shaping, construction, and/or texture. Stockinette, or even garter, is a-okay as long as there's someting to look forward to along the way ;)

Other finishes:

Simple crochet scarf from Happy Hooker Crochet. I don't care what my family says about this one, I love it. It's a keeper. Yarn: Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece (cotton/wool blend, divine). Note my fabulous work-from-home-day outfit, complete with bedhead hair. Pretty! Here's a shot sans moi:

Also, this:

Seminole Indian shirt for boy #2s 3rd grade social studies unit. I am not so much the seamstress, but at least it's done, yippee! Design goes around to the back and was fabric-markered by every member of the family, including Nana.
