I liked the pattern I found for free at Michael's called Simplicity Cowl. It was made from Lion brand's "Homespun" yarn and looked so soft and warm. I had several yarn scraps from other projects that I thought I could combine to make the pattern, since I didn't have enough of any one skein. I love how it turned out! Luckily, each color matched hues with other colors of the yarns. Two of the colors were solids, while the other two were tweed-like blends. As I have said before, I rarely use a pattern completely as it is written. I like to put my own "spin" on it.

I had some left-over yarn from a project, and decided to play with it and see what I could come up with. I took ten dark-colored and ten light-colored wooden beads, and made this necklace. I liked it, and wore it once, but the cord kept twisting where I wanted it to be in line. So, I slightly redid it, making smaller scallops on each side. I think the beads stand out a little more.
