Current Eternity Scarf On My Hook!

I am so excited to report that last week I filled three separate orders from my Etsy store, and another custom order in the works for two more Eternity Scarves. I still have one available online right now!

I wanted to share with you the project I'm currently working on. I'm actually just winging this Eternity Scarf which is rare for me since I usually follow a pattern.  I picked up this wonderful yarn by Mini Mochi in Santa Fe when I was there for Labor Day weekend. I wasn't quite sure what to do with it, but ultimately I thought I would try and make a little something special just for me. And now I'm so glad I did!

I'm really just blending stitches as I go along, but I think I'll add some more of those little popcorn stitches at some point. I just love the texture they create. And, I'm trying to keep it reversible, with popcorns on both sides, so that when I wear it twisted I won't have to worry about any of those little popcorns not being visible.
The yarn is a blend of 80% Merino wool and 20% Nylon, and it is super soft sock quality stuff. I absolutely love the colors and how they stream from green to red, with the pinks and purples in between. Since the yarn is so fine and my  hook is so small it is a slow-going project, but one that will be so worth it once I finish.

Do you have any projects currently in work?
