Let's hope I can keep this up!

Hello blog world!
I have been crafting, I promise! Ask my girlfriends we even had a Christmas craft day! I just haven't made posting a priority in my life, especially with Facebook to keep most people updated.

In 2011 I made: baby blankets, onesies (lots of them!), my first quilt top (soon to be finished I hope), I started water color journaling, crafty projects for my students, and a huge piece of wall art for our bedroom using canvas and acrylic paint!

However, I have been very bad at posting. Since I am not at home right now I will post what I have been working on since I have been on Winter Break!

My mom and I went to Cottage Crafts in San Jose during Thanksgiving and fell in love with a puffy white scarf. We didn't buy it and figured there had to be a way to make one. Right? So after some researching we found: Bunny Tail Yarn which can be found at Michael's.
(Picture shown is not white, it's ecru)

I found some white and was determined to make a scarf! I used size 6 knitting needles, 12 stitches across and two skeins of yarn. In hindsight I should have done 8-10 stitches, 12 is too wide! And if I had only used 8 stitched...I could have used 1 skein instead of two. Regardless it only took me a few hours to complete and I LOVE IT!
 Now I need to plan a trip in the new year to somewhere cold with snow, so I can show it off! Hope you all had a lovely holiday and a very happy New Year!
