Hands Free Wine

A friend of mine posted this picture on fb about a week ago.

It made me laugh out loud when I saw it because honestly, that doesn’t look too safe. Thankfully this woman is drinking white wine, but what about those of us who enjoy a glass of red from time to time? Anyway, this old college friend of mine posted it and hinted that it would be a great birthday present.
Completely as a gag gift (because I still highly doubt that anyone would use it!), this is what I came up with 🙂

Challenge accepted and completed in about 20 minutes! I used our university colors but as I was crocheting the middle stripes, I had to laugh out loud (again! Yes, there was a lot of giggling during the making of this gift) . Now that I have a son that has gone through a Pokémon phase, I couldn’t get over the fact that if my friend does in fact use this little beauty, some might take her as a huge Pokémon fan ;)…which actually makes this gift even better!
To make it was truly simple. All you need are ch and hdc for the whole thing. If I make another, I’ll be sure to write the pattern to share with you 🙂

Fringe Infinity Scarf

Maybe I’ll get some better pictures to put up, but I surprised my daughter this morning with this new infinity scarf made from some leftover Lion Brand Homespun yarn. Such an easy project that I actually made 3 of these (2 for me!) yesterday while home with my son who is recovering from that nasty stomach bug.
The first one I made, I put the fringe on both sides of the scarf and fear it turned out a little more lion-like than I had hoped 😉 The next 2, I just added fringe to one side and actually love the way it turned out! Can’t wait to go get some vibrant colors to add to my collection.
Do you think it’s too late in the season to add these to my etsy shop?
