The 100+ Scarves Update, Finally

Someday I swear I am going to figure out how my brain works and how I prioritize. I have been really busy on a million things, but I think everyone else has as well and yet they post on their blogs. A number of people asked me about seeing the scarves, so I took a few photos. Here are some. I sold enough to pay for all the yarn, but I still have scarves for next season as well since the ice skaters didn't need them all.
The first photo is at home when I was sorting them all out by style and price. The rest is at the skating competition. There are scarves with traditional ends, some with different fancy crocheted fringes and some without since I didn't think the guys and non girlie girls would like that sort of fringe. I also made infinity scarves that are a continuous loop like the Style E one in the photo, in different lengths and widths. I also made some button up ones for people that just like one around their neck and not hanging out or bunched up in their coats. I was hoping to see what the most popular was, but I seemed to sell a pretty equal number of each. I guess that's a good thing.
Warning: this is going to make me sound like a grandma, but I am. I am now making dishcloths to wash dishes with, by popular demand. It started with my niece telling me about them and wanting more, then it was one of my daughters. I was told they work better than anything you can buy, and they do. 100% cotton and all that texture makes washing things off a breeze! I haven't counted, but the pile is growing and I have already given them away to so many people!
I am also busy at work making my item that will be a donation for the Art Unraveled raffle, the item that will be given away at a drawing during the shopping extravaganza, more inchies and more hearts for the 10 of hearts class.  They are all in the works. I work and let things simmer and then go back. Sometimes I wish I could start and finish before picking up a new project but I also think things turn out better when they simmer most of the time.
