To Infinity (Scarf) and Beyond!

With my first holiday artisan's market only one month away (Lindbergh Holiday Boutique in Dearborn, MI on November 10), I am trying very hard to work on my inventory.  Infinity scarves seem to be a very popular item this season, so I made another one this week.  Quite a different style than the one featured in last week's blog.  While that one was gossamer light, this one was created with a warm, chunky weight yarn in a gorgeous shade of plummy purple.   The yarn is scattered with sequins in the same color, and they catch and reflect the light beautifully.

The other two pieces I finished this week are in traditional autumn tones.  This fringed triangle scarf is worked in a silky ribbon-style yarn the features shades of brown, bronze, peach and lavender.  The photos really do not do justice to the colors.

Finally, I made some additional acorn earrings.  This time I used earthy autumn-toned beads and antique gold metallic thread to create multiple loops cascading from the caps.  I did not paint the caps, but only gave them a light coat of a lacquer that has just a hint of sparkle.

Tonight, it's time to start a new project.  I like to have the television on while I work, but I can only watch things that I know well -- don't have to pay much attention to keep up.  Having grown up as the oldest of seven children, working in dead silence is impossible for me.  I need the comforting background noise.  So which will it be Leave it to Beaver re-runs or Star Trek Next Generation (I own the complete series of each).  Very different choices from very different times, I know ... I'll have to ponder on it.
