Dad's Scarf...

I looked at a lot of patterns while trying to decide what scarf to make for my Dad. I wanted something that would be warm and look masculine, and of coarse, most of the patterns are not. I was very happy to find a pattern for the Thermal Scarf on the Lion Brand website. Did you know that you can sign-up for e-mails? The have some really cute patterns for crochet and knitting. The pattern is really easy to follow and works up pretty quickly. I love the look (perfect for a guy) and how warm it keeps you (perfect for the cold weather). I used Caron Simply Soft yarn in Grey Heather. It's a great yarn to work with and comes in a lot of beautiful colors.

It's beautiful out today, warm with blue skies and a slight breeze. It's been very "spring-like" here this week. (I actually spent some time a few days ago outside in the backyard doing a little bit of yard work.) I wish it would cool back down though and feel more like winter again - well, maybe in a few days...

Wishing you a beautiful day...

  1. Love this scarf! Thanks for the link to the pattern! Lion Brand DOES have great patterns! Found you via Tangled Happy's link to you! Glad to know you in blog land? Did I see you are in California? I'm a native Californian but left about eight years ago and now live in Virginia. I was from the San Fernando Valley / Burbank area. Take care and see you around.
