Two down four to go

I finished the second of my six projects this morning and delivered it to the girl at work. She seemed quite thrilled with them.
This is all I'm going to show you though.

Because Duke says he wants to do the presentation

Guys can wear pink too.

The design of this scarf is simple, nothing fancy but it's so thick and soft.
I bought some of the chunky weight yarn and put it together with a plain pink regular yarn. It may be a little on the heavy side but the thickness is awesome.

How pretty and pink is my favorite color. Duke did an excellent job with the presentation. I know you would get things done. I just knew it.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

OK, Ann. Now I know we must be twins separated at birth. I have a completed post draft of a houndstooth scarf I just finished for Raider. I was feeling a little strange crocheting a scarf for my dog, but now I have courage to share it. Duke and Raider might become trend setters!

I was planning on posting later this week but I think I will do it now :)

I love the pattern on the one you made. It is beautiful!

Ann said...

Beautiful! As is Duke. No wonder your co-worker loved the presents - how thoughtful you are. If ever there was a winter for a heavy scarf, this is it!

Alain said...

Has Duke considered a career in modelling? Great photos!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Oh, it's beautiful!! I love the colors. I don't know how you got the stripes so even! Most scarves like that are too thin, so this would be just perfect for very cold weather. Duke is a vision of pastel!!

Catherine said...

I don't know how simple it is (as I can't knit) but it is sure 'oh so cute'! And Duke always makes a wonderful model. It does look warm!

That is a great scarf! Are they very hard to make, because I would love to be able to make some.

gayle said...

BeadedTail said...

P.S. Obviously Duke got the memo (real men wear pink).

Unknown said...

On Duke, everything looks dashing!

Duni said...

Love it,love the colour!
Duke did a wonderful job at modeling :)

Philippa said...

Very knifty!!

MadSnapper said...

add beautiful to thick and soft in the descripiton. and Duke gets the academy award for best presentation of a scarf. he looks so handsome and i think he needs one of his own, maybe a little shorter for him and in blue for boy

Russ AKA Grampy said...

It is looking great. I could use one over here right now. Duke looks very fashionable in it. Way to go Duke.

Ann said...

Sandee I like pink as well and it ranks up there with my favorites

LDH LOL I loved your scarf for Raider I think Duke may need one of those now

Ann oh yeah, thick scarf weather for sure

Alan he has but he says they could never pay him well enough to make it worth his

ginny I used a variegated yarn so the stripes just ended up wherever, the yard pretty much did that work for me

catherine I tried it out before I handed it over and I loved how thick it was

tahtimbo the looms are very easy to use. I'm sure you would have no trouble with it at all

gayle me too, and thanks

beaded tail yes he did quite well with the modeling and he did get a reward for a job well done

cheryl duke wasn't thrilled with the assignment at first but after a little talk he was willing to cooperate

T thanks, Duke did do a good job

Amanda LOL, are you saying you want a pink scarf?

Jen thanks, I love variegated yarns, no need to switch Yes Duke did get the memo and he's happy to wear his pink

Fishhawk, he does seem to be one of those guys who can pull anything off

duni thank, duke was pretty proud of his job

philippa, thanks

sandra I agree that duke needs his own, it's only fair that he should be rewarded for his performance

russ I bet with all that shoveling you've been doing a thick scarf is a necessity

Marg said...

Oh Duke, you look so dashing in that scarf that Mom made. How nice of you to model it for us. You are such a good Westie. And look at that, your mom did get something done. Well done Ann. Love the color.

June Zach said...

The super cutie Duke! :)

allotments4you said...

This is lovely Ann...I'm still trying to get the hang of my nifty knitters...did you use them for this??

Joanne Olivieri said...

Love the colors on that scarf and it looks so warm and comfy. Duke is the perfect model. Seeing him so early in the morning just makes my day :D

Tanyia said...

This is really pretty, Ann, I love the color and it looks soooo warm! :) I love warm...I need warm... it is too damn cold here in VA for me lol.

Out on the prairie said...

Nice colors, a friend made me a camo yarn scarf. I will have to model it .HA!

Sheri said...

Beautiful scarf! And Duke is right, guys can wear pink! He looks simply adorable.

Donna said...

And he looks SO handsome!!Lol
Also LOVE the cake in the box gift!!
Stay warm sweetie!

Ann said...

Marg How about that, I had a productive I think it was giving myself a deadline

junezach duke says thanks

allotments4you yes, i did. I used the long loom for the scarf

poetic shutterbug I liked the colors too and even duke looked good in it

tanyia thanks. I think you've were spoiled too long living in Florida, what were you thinking moving somewhere

out on the prairie I'll have to keep the camo yarn in mind in case I make any scarves for guys

sheri thanks and yes pink is ok for guys.

donna, thanks, duke and I appreciate the kind words.

Miawa said...

From what I've seen of your pictures, brrrr! Heavy is good. It's very pretty and Duke looks great modeling it.

Lynn said...

Duke is most handsome. :D Oh yeah, the scarf is lovely too.

Sharkbytes said...

Very cool! How do you finish the ends? Just sew?

Reeni said...

How pretty! The scarf and the dog! I wish I could just give Duke a big bear hug - such a cutie!

DSS said...

I don't think I've seen a scarf that thick before. It looks so war and toasty :) So, did Duke request that you make one for him? Because he looks rather comfortable in the scarf!

Tammy said...

It's wonderful! Duke you look very good in pink :)

Ann said...

Miawa brrr is right

Lynn thanks to both

sharkbytes you use a crochet hook to pull the end of the scarf off the loom so just fasten off the way you would in crochet

reeni duke would enjoy that

dss guess if you want them that thick you gotta make em yourself :)
No requests from Duke yet

tammy he says to tell you thanks

Whimcees said...


I love this dog! :<)

You are so lucky - and so is he! :<)

I hope this finds you well and wish you a great week!

Anne said...

That scarf is beautiful and Duke just shows it off to great advantage.

Ann said...

whimcees Duke appreciates that and yes we are both lucky

anne thanks he was very cooperative in modeling that for me.
