Scarfing Safari

 So............. Scarves. And scarves on safari?
I have realised going back to work has really inhibited my blog writing. Yesterday morning I decided to have some fun with the new scarves I've made since I last posted, and took them for a bit of a walk around the garden, as you can see.
I love the scarf above, I saw a runway shot on someone's blog in my early days of crochet frenzy (last month), and had to make one for myself. I read somewhere when joining, to leave one square vacant so you can tuck the ends through. You can see I did this on the left hand side.  It works, and looks really cute tucked through, but if you just want to wear the scarf flat without tucking it, then there's a gaping hole.
so the only solution was to make another granny square scarf. I used some lovely alpaca wool I have, and you can see the end results below. This is now one of my favourites. I made this one a bit longer than the first so I can wind it around.

I am really happy with both these scarves.
I think with the whole back to work I have been enjoying the happy mindlessness of making scarves.

Here is the last of the back to work beauties I have made. My daughter said this one looks like a watermelon, and I think so too. I love the colours.

 Coincidentally I made this from the same wool as the granny square above, but it looks totally different.


OOPS, almost forgot to mention....today I am Grateful 4 everything I have in life, my beautiful family in particular
