My Beaded Scarf is done!!

I finally finished my beaded scarf. I learned SO much with this project. One thing is that I actually began to recognize the stitches and be able to "read" my own knitting. That was a true revelation!! I also learned the crab stitch to edge. I didn't know this stitch and I found instructions on YouTube. You can find ANYTHING on!! I also learned about blocking. My first try just didn't do the trick. So, I did it again and it was great!! I love how it turned out. It's soft and wonderful.

I wear a lot of blue, it's my favorite color. I think this particular shade is bright and rich. I do NOT like the multi color yarn however, and I won't buy that again!

The bead part is a lot of work, but I just love how the beads look and feel. In fact, I have already started another scarf, green this time. It's going so much faster this time around. Not as many mistakes so far. (fingers crossed!)

I got all of my Christmas decorations put away on New Years Day (with dear hubby's help!). It was quite a marathon!!! It felt really good to get my house back to normal. It seems fresh and new. A great way to start out the New Year.

I just had to show a picture of our two kitties. They often fight over the one kitty bed, now that I know they like it, I will pick up another! Lately, they have given up fighting and decided to share. Aren't they precious??

Have a great week!!


Check out this GREAT giveaway on Joy's's a BIG one!!



  1. Hi Stephanie,

    Congratulations on your scarf - it is very nice! Thank you for your comment on my blog and for keeping my sister in prayer.

    God Bless you.


  2. I love your beaded scarf...that's amazing! You definitely have more patience than me!
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope your goal list is getting done faster than mine. I love your idea of a digital vision board!
    Have a good week,

  3. Hi Stephanie - your scarf turned out beautiful (I love blue, too!)... and your kitties are oh so precious!!! Maybe ours leave the tree alone becuase they're now 15, although to be honest, I don't really remember them attacking the tree when they were younger either. Although Spotty does like to chew on our fake tree. We always had real trees up until 2 years ago... And he really enjoys chewing plastic evidently. Your two look like siblings... Ours are brother and sister. Thank you for visiting my blog!... Donna @ An Enchanted Cottage
