Double Cross Infinity Scarf

This may be my last winter item.  The Double Cross Infinity Scarf came into being by accident.  I was at that time where I lost my interest in crocheting and I was tired of the yarn in my stash.  As most of us say, “I will not buy any more yarn until I use what I have”.  LOL, that does not always work.  I was armed with full skein of red yarn and off I went.  The yarn is really red and not pink.

Pop in your favorite DVD and knock this easy project out.  The Double Cross Infinity Scarf will make an excellent last minute gift.

Protect Ya Neck Neckwarmer

Who is ready for some snow?  We got blasted here in Fredericksburg, VA.  I’m still trying to figure out why they make such a big deal out of buying up all of the milk and bread.

Bread and Milk Panic

This video cracks me up every time.

What a great time to get snowed in with your favorite yarn, hook and pattern.

The Protect Ya Neck Neckwarmer is just what is needed.  Made with chunky yarn and a large hook used will have you wearing yours in no time. The split collar gives it that boom pow look.  The Protect Ya Neck Neckwarmer can be worn over or under your coat or over your top.  You can create 3 different looks with one neckwarmer.

This is not a yarn eater.  I used 4 skeins and 2 were for the neck for the 3 colored one and 2 skeins for the  black and red one.  I think I crocheted tighter with that one.

Ok, I decided to get a bit creative and daring using my two favorite colors, black and red.  My sister said it reminded her of Cruella De Vil.
