Second project: scarf

My second project, linked below, is a scarf. It's to be a thank-you gift for my MiL, since she actually showed me the double crochet stitch that I used, and gave me part of the yarn (Caron's Perfect Match, if anyone is curious). It's actually cream, but such is the picture quality with a cell phone camera.

I'm rather pleased with it. I ought to be: I pulled it out entirely three times! Seriously, it took far longer than it should've due to me getting all perfectionist about it. It's the first time I've ever done anything with fringe. I hope she'll like it.

My next project? Decisions, decisions. I ought to get cracking on a baby blanket for a friend whose first child is due in 4 months (in my defense, they just told everyone less than a week ago), but I'd really rather work on a scarf for a co-worker. (Yes, catarzyna, I'm thinking of braving the pineapple one. Please keep your fingers crossed.)

Your picture isn't showing up.:-(

Good luck with the pineapples they look more intimidating than they really are.

D'oh! I have no idea why: I checked the IMG SRC tag and everything. Might be something with Picasa. I changed it to a link:

That is a beautiful scarf! (although I agree with the above, it isn't showing up in your post, I needed to riffle to find it)

Also:
I love pineapples; I have tons and tons of pineapple patterns. (Addicted much? :p)
They are so pretty and incredibly easy!

In fact, I won at my county fair using pineapples!

Wow, that looks intricate. Well done, and congratulations! Thank you for sharing the picture.

I have no idea why the piccie isn't showing up. I edited it to be just a link; perhaps that will help.

Thanks for being so nice about the scarf. It's only my second project, so I'm still getting my feet wet, as it were. :)

It's very impressive for a second project, I know I didn't do nearly as well on my second try, or my third or fourth for that matter.

And a secret about the doily: it's all about the pineapples; I swear they are like, magic or something, they are so easy, and everything made with them looks so cool!
