FO Friday: Scrapbusting scarf and other goodies

It’s been three weeks since I last participated in F.O. Friday, but I’ve actually finished quite a few projects in that time.

I made three secret projects using this yarn, along with about eight swatches, for Kollabora, a new maker community.

A poorly lit teaser.

The big reveal was supposed to be this week, but it was delayed due to the after effects of Sandy.  Rumor has it that pictures may be posted early next week, and once that happens, I can share all the details with you.

I’ve also been crocheting ripples like mad as part of the Ripple Mania Crochet-A-Long.  If you like ripples (or have always wanted to try them), join in!  We have some great prize sponsors including Red Heart, Leisure Arts, and Magique Enterprises (makers of the Eleggant Hooks I reviewed here).

I just finished this scrappy ripple scarf last night.  I was greatly aided by my new post-Sandy commute (2+ hours each way).  In all seriousness, I’m grateful that I fared so well during Sandy.  So many people have lost their homes and businesses or are still without power.

I really loved the color of these flowers so I asked MC to take a dawn picture of me in front of them.

I used up about 300 yards of stash wool yarn.  The question now is whether I should felt it.  I love the texture but I’d like to gift it to someone who definitely isn’t the handwashing type.  What do you think?

Prior to that, I finished this eyelet ripple infinity scarf which I’ve been wearing almost non-stop for the last two and a half weeks. At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the colors, but they have really been cheering me up during the many grey days that New York has been experiencing.

In case you’re wondering, I didn’t get a makeover :). That’s one of the models I’ve been working with to take pictures of my patterns.

And, because my cat would definitely be disappointed if he didn’t get something out of all this crocheting, I made him a cat blanket a few weeks ago.

We put it on top of an end table and positioned it next to my desk.  The blanket has helped a lot when my cat wants to walk all over my desk while I’m typing.  Now I can just push him onto the blanket and he will sit down and be (slightly) less disruptive.

All three stitch patterns are included in Ripple Mania.
