Scarf Season Approaches!

Here is the Scarf-O-Matic bar for my current Dr. Who Season 12 scarf.  This one is in mostly Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn with a bit of Vanna's Choice and Red Heart where I needed the colors.  After this one, I will spring for some 100% wool or some chenille for a more authentic scarf.

I also have all the Caron Simply Soft to make another version of the Alice field trip scarf from the first Twilight movie.  My first was mostly blue, but this one will include some purples, too.  I got a closer look at some movie stills and think the purple is more accurate--and prettier.

If you are on Ravelry, check out my projects.  Send me a friend request while you're on there, OK?

My Favorite Craft Sources

Take 50% Off Books and eBooks at Interweave Store

Follow the banner link above to a world of crafts, both familiar and obscure.  Interweave press caters to knitters, weavers, alpaca farmers, art teachers.....anyone who likes to make things with their own hands.

If you are a quilter, I can highly recommend Keepsake Quilting.  I have ordered from them since the days of paper catalogs that came in the mail.


For the lover of small shops who has no nearby shop, consider placing an order at Gohn Bros.  This Middlebury, Indiana store caters to Amish and Mennonite customers as well as "Englischers."  I have ordered fabric from them in the past as well--and they now have their paper catalog available online.

If you have a favorite resource we should all check out, please let me know in the comments.  I love to find new stuff!
