Knitted Ruffle Scarf

I have a new craft to share today.
I finally learned to knit a ruffle scarf that is so popular.
I had tried to do this several years ago and had trouble
getting the first several rows done. But once I got the hang of it,
 I knitted five in about  a week and am taking
 request from friends and family.
Each time I complete one, I swear it's my favorite
------until I complete another.
I began by casting on five loops from behind, then knit
in each loop for a couple of rows;  add on three
more loops and continue to knit each row until desired length.
Yard is Starbella purchased at A. C. Moore.

Yes, It's been awhile

Sorry Followers, I realize it has been awhile since I posted
 but things got rather busy in November and December.
I promise to get back in the swing of things soon.
In the meantime here is a little project I did for Granddaughter's
class at Christmas.
Due to students having so many allergies, our school
system will no longer allow home baked goods or
any types of treats that may trigger allergies. So, I was having a
hard time deciding what to do until I saw the above on Pinterest.
So simple to make . First,  I printed the saying on my computer then stamped
the penguin from the Close To My Heart Wintery Wishes
Hostess Rewards set, Item# C1560. The cello bags came from Michael's and were
the perfect size to hold the card and the chap stick fit snug enough to hold it in place
without having to use tape or glue.
I love the saying and these were a great hit with her classmates for this is something all
can use during these cold winter months
I wish all a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
