Makeover Monday

Over the last week or so, Sophie has been watching me with her keen 4.75 year old eyes as I've been crocheting gifts for Christmas. One day she solemnly asked when I was ever going to make something for her. Guilt ridden, I took her to Michael's the next day, and let her choose the yarn for her special treat. She went for her favorite color... "rainbow".
Inspired by the beautiful curly scarves by Victoria at ribbonsundone (the BLOG and the SHOP), I made Sophie a child sized rainbow ruffle scarf. The colors turned out both brighter and more lovely than I had anticipated, and it doesn't even seem to clash too badly with her new coat. She is no shrinking violet, this little firecracker of mine!
The yarn is Michael's Loops and Threads Kaleidoscope in Carnival. The pattern was adapted from this one.
Rug update: for those who were hoping to see some rug progress today, it will be a couple more days before I'm ready to share. Stay tuned!

Sophie's scarf turned out so beautifully! I can just picture it tossed around her neck....charming for sure! And, it looks quite ravishing with her new coat...a little fashionista she is!!! :)

PS...I look forward to seeing how your rug is coming along....spectacularly I'm certain!

Awwww--I'm touched. How could I have missed this post yesterday? I was too caught up in my own little world, once again. Ironing, errands, you know, all that glamorous stuff!

The scarf is oh-so-fun, and Sophie has terrific kid taste! Catherine would probably pick the same colorful yarn.

I'm thinking, maybe we should be whipping up kids' scarves for our shops. Great job. Love the post. Thank you for the plug. I appreiciate it!
