I made this scarf as birthday present for a friend. Instead of trying to guess what she might want I made up a set of coupons that had the following on them :
- One evening day of free babysitting
- One family dinner cooked by me at my house or theirs ( I am sure there will be other dinners but sometimes it's nice not to have to worry about supper)
- One handmade scarf or similar item in your choice of style and color
The yarn used is is knit picks Chroma in colorway prism. I did 36 repeats of the motif so its more that long enough to be used as a scarf or belt in several different configurations, and I think it turned out stunningly. I am considering making another one myself in the same color way--with the leftovers.

I have been having tons of migraines lately, and had another last night and this morning. When I finally woke feeling only mildly ill around noon I decided to spend some time knitting and watching reruns of one of my favorite shows Warehouse 13. I Learned a new skill---knitting icord which surprisingly easy and made up a couple soft head band which I desperately need since my has been at that awkward length where the front is a bit too short for a full pony tail for quite a while now. After I got int a nice rhythm my brain began to improve and I cam up with a really cool sort of cable icord head band that is taking me forever to knit and will have to wait until next week for its debut.
