I just finished my mixed fiber poncho which also acts as a shawl, cowl, scarf, etc... Created from some fibers/yarns/mixes and one size fits all.  There are strategically placed buttons, so you can wear it a ton of ways... It measures 70" X 19" so you have plenty of room to wrap it different ways!

Sharing my passion for fiber and texture! The art of wearing a scarf!

One of my greatest passions is creating fun, fiberlicous scarves and fashion accessories.  My beginning crochet days kept me in a more conservative arena, but once I learned the basic stitches and skills needed for crochet I began to explore the wonderful variety of fibers and yarns.   Color is always an enticing factor, but the feel, texture, and appearance of the yarn is what really pulls me in.  I have been fascinated the past few years as more variety has hit the yarn aisles of my favorite stores.  The idea of mixing fun colors with rich textures is so appealing- I would love to learn how to spin and create my own fibers, but for now, I am content with utilizing a mixture of blends from my yarn stash in a project, and even holding several varying strands together as I stitch.  Here are a few of my favorites from this past year:





Considering my fascination with creating scarves, I thought I would explore all the ways I can show my customers to wear them... But, as I started to write the post, I thought.. Hmmm.... I bet someone has already done this. Guess what? They have! And here are a few - which is great, because I had never thought of some of these ideas... So, thanks you fashion savvy bloggers who created these posts- Check them out yourself by clicking the links below!
