FO: Kniting Loom Scarf - Cabana Print

On small loom
Finished Scarve
Knit Design & Fringe
I started this scarf December 26, 2006 and I completed it on December 30, 2006 I really like it and I think I am going to make a stocking cap to match.
I made the scarf on the small round knitting loom (I bought the set of round looms from Hobby Lobby, they were 50% off) I don't really like the fact that it curls up, but that is probably because I only used one strand of yarn and not two (DUH!) oh well! I didn't want the scarf to be to heavy or thick.

In Loving Memory

I was informed this evening that one of my Friends & Co-worker passed away. She was involved in a car accident and died at the scene. Farrah would have been 25 years old on Saturday, she leaves behind a 3 year old Daughter, and a town of family & friends that will miss her dearly. Please keep her family & friends in your prayers.

I was working on a Crocheted Coin Purse for Farrah for her birthday (I was planning on giving it to her on Friday, I was going to finish it tomorrow) she asked about it this afternoon before she left work and I told her that she would be receiving it for her Birthday, she said she was excited to see it.

I will miss you Farrah.
