Icarus Scarf

I started this thing LAST year for a Mother's Day gift for my mom.

I gave it to her for Christmas.

It's nice that all my friends think they can depend on me until they read my blog. Yikes!

This is the Icarus Scarf that I found on the other favorite blog, The Purl Bee. I used the yarn the recommended called Silken Straw in some purplish hues (it's my mom's fave color), but it ended up looking sort of pinkish (which is NOT her favorite color) but whatever. That shiz was expensive, and it took me 8 months to make, so LOVE it. ;)

This stuff is amazing yarn. It's made of silk, but its straw-like (is it stupid I am explaining what Silken Straw is made of???) so its a pain in the arse to crochet with, hence the 8 months. But I think it turned out pretty darn smart, and mom sure loved it, which is all I really care about. :)

  1. It's super cute! I'm guessing expensive yarn doesn't mean itchy?

    Oh, and I think my friend Jen is going to email you soon! She has been searching for some cute reusable bags!
