Making Lemonade

Last year I started knitting this scarf on my Knifty Knitter...was going along just fine - more than halfway to where I wanted...then it wasn't winter anymore so I stopped working on it. Needed the Knifty Knitter loom for something else and thought.."well, just slip it off and when you are done with the other project, slip it back on and finish"..
You know that old saying about best laid plans? Well, one of my darling kitty-cats found the project and was dragging it around the house with much glee - DH rescued the poor thing from the taloned monster. But..the damage was done! I could NOT figure out how to get it back onto the Knifty Knitter loom the right direction and several rows had been pulled out..It languished in another stack until this morning when I had a flash of inspiration about what to DO WITH IT!

A few tassels, a couple of buttons and some beads, and voila! I have a scarf-collar! Beauty of using the button fastener is I can make a new one anytime I want to match any outfit I want to pair this with!

Pretty! (and you're so smart!) I didn't know what a Knifty Knitter was so I googled it and came upon a whole page of projects to use them. Who knew you could make mittens on a round loom? Cool!

What a smart save!

What a great idea, and it is so good looking. Cats...I still have a needlepoint piece with blood on it because my cat chewed on it and ran the tapestry needle into her gum. I still love them, though (the cat and the needlepoint).
