I ♥ scarves and shawls

And while I absolutely love wearing them and possibly even making them, I'm not very good at photographing them. So, I apologize in advance for the not terribly good pictures. Dark blue is almost impossible to photograph. Oh, sure, you can take a picture of it but you're not going to be able to see detail. So, here we go:

As you can see, there's a variety of scarves, if not colors - I was trying out things in dark blue. Love the ruffly scarf, even if I never could get my machine to sew with the elastic thread. So, I just tried something different (and I will give links to tutorials I used soon). The pale aqua was a repurposed Tshirt, it's a little thin and I'm going to try something different for my next trick.
I'm wearing one of the ruffly scarves, the thinner one, the thicker one is too much for me. This one was literally a 15 minute scarf - I made all the mistakes on the first one. That one took a lot longer, used up a whole spool of thread and destroyed 4 sewing machine needles.
The red shawl is from a knitting class I took recently. Even pacing myself severely because of a repetitive stress injury that just won't go away, I finished it in 6 days. Love the feel, not so thrilled with the fringe. The next one won't have fringe.
The close-up is of a scarf made from yet another tutorial and that's one's good, too. A bit more work than some of the others but well worth it.
And the cotton scarf is made with Anna Maria Horner voile fabric, feels lovely and is fast to sew. More later.........

Probably not, Marilee.
There will be more, Kathy.
Arline, these are all quick and easy to make - unlike your beautiful beaded pages.
