Boteh is finished

I finished the boteh scarf yesterday afternoon. I am really pleased with the way it turned out. And it took only one skein of the Luster Sheen. It's really soft and drapes very nicely. I think it will be a great accessory when the weather is a little cooler. I am looking forward to being able to wear it. The finish was just a half double crochet all the way around, and it worked up really fast. I think this pattern is a keeper, and would make really nice gifts. I think it could also be worked in a DK weight wool or wool blend, which would increase the size of the motifs a little, but would make it more of a cold-weather scarf to wear with coats.

The way it's worked up here it's more of a daily accessory that can be worn all the time. Yea!

Now it's time to go through my list of projects and decide what to start next. I am still working on those granny squares, but I'm itching to start another project or two as well.

That really did turn out so cute. There is a killer red Simply Soft that would be beautiful in that pattern. I may just have to do that!
