Scrappy Tails Scarf

Lots of odds and ends but not sure what to make with them?

Don't waste it.
Hook it.

This was made from lots of 5 ply scraps, blue ribbon and even kitchen twine features in this scrappy tails scarf.

I started by joining the ends of the scraps together, no matter how short/long, they got tied together and crocheted into the scarf.  Once I had finished, I intended to weave in all my ends, however, fell in love with the scrappiness of the whole scarf, so left it.  

I did make a scarf from the yarn my neighbour gave me which was donated to the hospital, however, didn't have enough to make another full scarf.  The smaller oddments have been taking up space and I didn't want to waste them.  When I finished this, I wasn't sure if it would be 'donatable' and not sure that your 'regular' person would enjoy wearing this, so decided to keep this one for me.  I really love it and have been wearing it quite a lot as it goes with pretty much everything I own.  Every single time I have worn it, I have been asked where did I get it, and how great it looks, which really surprised me, as it's not your average scarf type scarf.  

I am going to make more of these now to donate for sure.  Perhaps other people really would like to wear them too.  

Thanks so much for stopping by my place today, and thank you for all the lovely well wishes.  It's all systems go here this week at our place, just the way I like it.  

Have a great week at your place.
