Hot dog or hero?

Yes, I finished my Olympic challenge project waaay before the closing ceremonies, but I did start it about two years ago. So, don't judge me, I'm just trying to have fun.

I'll give this to my mom next month when I see her for her 60th birthday. This scarf will be a bonus. BTW, the Trendsetter Dune yarn looks fabulous next to the Provence. It really dresses it up.

Here are some other finishished projects I haven't shown you:

This sweater is from the Rowan Cotton Braid Book. It's a roomy comfortable sweater that I enjoy wearing. I didn't use the cotton braid for this one. Believe it or not, I can't track down the ball band, and I can't remember what I used. The bell shaped sleeves give a simple pullover a little interest. Yes, it's a wee bit big, but my first attempt was huge. I had to go down a needle size and a pattern size. Yikes!

And finally, my green ribby vest in Taki's Donegal Tweed from the Rowan Classic Woman Book Seven. Even though SD says it looks like a bullet proof vest, I like it. I love the green color with the flecks of purple and organge. I have a ton of this yarn left, so who knows where it will appear again.

You're a hot dog and a show-off and I love the FOs. Congratulations on the new digital camera! The pics look great and really add to the blog.

I miss you!
