I used the leftover yarn I had from my purchase - It wasn't long enough to make a neck warmer, so I had to improvise with what I had laying around! Not bad, if I do say so myself!

Also features a little red wooden bead and a crocheted flower!

I'm not going to try and rewrite this pattern. I found it in Donna Kooler's Encyclopedia of Crochet. Page 142. It's called the Solid Shell Stitch. My starting CH was 12 + 1.

I love how the shells separate the colors and you can really see the pattern forming within the colors! (c;

Now, I have no more beautiful yarn - need to buy some more! (c;

My vacation is over - back to work on Monday. Can you hear me crying???

I hear you crying, Girl! I am crying, too. This week went by so quickly and now we have a very long stretch without any time! Ugh. My three year old daughter chose the wrong week to get the fever-coughy bug,too. But, the snow was lovely today. I love the new scarf and scarfette. The yarn is dreamy. You've made me want to run to the Yarn Girl for some lessons. Enjoy the weekend.

Thank you Cyndy - I think you are my #1 Fan - or at least my one and only reader!

Enjoy your weekend too - and now the countdown begins to Good Friday! (c;
