Frankenscarf and other random thoughts

I joined a group on Ravelry that is doing a Frankenscarf round robin. One gal had started a scarf and decided she wasn't happy with the project.  So she ended off the yarn and sent it to someone else.  She used whatever yarn and pattern she wanted to and then sent it to me.  I used the stitch pattern from the Sagebrush shrug.  It is on my list to make soon for my daughter.  So even though it isn't a whole FO, my part of the scarf is finished! So this is my FO of the week. Check out everyone else's finishes at Tami's blog.

I found another great blog party at Fiber Arts Friday!  Check it out!

We went to Moab last weekend and had a great time.  Peaty and Eddy love hiking in the desert! 

Our neighbor put up one of those inflatable decorations.  I am not usually a fan, but this one made me smile!  It reminds me of when my son was young and how he and his friends always loved to play being Ghostbusters!

Shawl for Sister




I finished a shawl for my sister's birthday.  The pattern is Barbara, and I chose this because that is her name. I am happy with the result.  I used an alpaca lace yarn.  My project file is here on Ravelry.  I took her to Snowbird for a weekend getaway, so the last photo is us at the top.  

My FO Friday post for this week.  Check out what everyone else is doing at Tami's blog.

Snowbird


Snowbird resort.

The fall colors were spectacular!


Beautiful Mountain.

Full Moon rising above the haze at 11,000 feet.

Lovely sunset.

I took my sister to Snowbird for a birthday treat.  Lovely weather. The fall colors were just perfect.  We were able to do some hiking and playing on the rides.  Oktoberfest was still going on, lots of beer everywhere.  And food!  A good time was had by all.
