Dress Progress, Scarf & Ideas

Glam Knits Dress in Progress Glam Knits Dress in Progress
I figure this knit dress is still going to take me a while more, so I will do another post about it. For a brief moment I tried to convince myself I could actually get it done on or by my birthday this week, as a sort of present to myself, but that was a little far fetched. I figure since the sleeves are still to come I've got another good week or perhaps two (weaving in ends!) to go before it's completely finished. I am pretty happy with how it's turning out. I've cast off the body already, although I may come back to add some length once I've finished the sleeves, if I have enough yarn to do so.

Scarf Scarf
Once I cast off the bottom of the dress I had the urge to take a break, so I grabbed some organic cotton yarn I've had in the stash a while. I thought it would look cute if I made a scarf with a different color fringe on the bottom. I like making fringe, but I haven't done it for a while. It's a pretty simple way to make the ends of your scarves look a little more decorative than they otherwise would, and it has a nice feel to it, fun to play with and run your fingers through while you wear it. I'm considering putting this one in my etsy shop and/or making more similar to this one. I haven't decided yet. Ah, if only I had unlimited access to yarn and could knit really really fast, I have lots of ideas I'd like to try!
