Finishes on a Friday

I have a couple of things I have finished...today I finished the scarf that was just a skein of yarn on Wednesday.  I ended up not doing an edging because 1.  I didn't have enough yarn and 2. I tried just a sc and hated the way it looked...the colors didn't line up...but I did another repeat and I'm happy with it...My Rainbow Boteh
I love how it looks all folded up....

I also have a bunch of hats in various stages, so I finished one up...these are going into a collection of hats that I will donate to my school...

This is yarn that was gifted to me by an online friend....every now and then, we send packages to each other...it's my turn...I don't know what the yarn is but feels like a mixture of cotton and acrylic.

In addition, yesterday I received this in the mail...

It's the new Random Fandom, Can You Picture That - inspired by The Electric Mayhem from The Muppets.....I love this yarn!  I love that it has sparklies....I want socks....glorious, glorious socks!

And today is my 44th birthday!  I don't feel that old, well maybe my joints do....I wonder what the day will bring?

Please go to these great places to read some more! Tami, Natural Suburbia, and Wisdom Begins in Wonder...

Your scarf is beautiful, great colors and such an interesting pattern. I'll have to go check that out. I enjoy a quick crochet project once in a while and I'm sure that somewhere in the middle of this big blankie I'm working on I'll need a little break. Thanks for sharing.
