Why yes, amazing, isn't it?
Because I have something that I just can't wait to show off--and give away!
I have been toying with the idea of crocheting some beaded scarves/sashes to sell on Etsy for a while now. Those of you who follow The Raspberry Rabbits may have seen the scarf/sash I made for Michelle, and if you click on the link at the right of the page for my crochet project pics on Facebook, you can see another one that I made (the recipient of which will be unnamed because it is a gift not yet given). The response was so positive that I decided to give it a shot, so I went out and found some lovely yarn and beads and set to work on one as a prototype.
Here is the result:
(sorry, bunny not included)
(closeup of detail)
Color: white w/silver-lined glass beads (inspired by Michelle May, who loves her white :) )
Yarn: Baby Bunny (what else?) by Plymouth Yarn--60% Pima Cotton, 30% Modal, 10% Angora
Beads: 0/6 seed beads, clear w/silver lining
Care: Hand wash, dry flat
Length: approx. 40"
Width: approx. 3"
This is a very versatile item; it can be worn straight, knotted or wrapped as a scarf, or tied around the waist as a sash or belt.
The ones I plan on making for sale will be slightly thinner, so I have decided to give this one away to one of my loyal readers/followers.
1. The drawing will be on January 31st.

I'm so very happy with how this scarf turned out, so I really hope whoever wins it will be just as happy with it. Good luck to all! :)
