FO Friday: Irish Hiking Scarf and rainbow crayons





I finally finished my Irish hiking scarf and I love it! It's so soft and squishy and most important....WARM! This scarf was started about 3 years ago, but I kept getting distracted by other projects. I'm so happy that I finally finished it.

Now I just need a new coat that matches it :P

My friend and I had a crack at making rainbow crayons for a joint Birthday party our girls are having in December. They didn't go quite to plan, but we figured they'd still be better than the cheap, boring crayons you usually get in a party bag.

we melted it...oops




Later in the day, I decided to have a go at doing just one colour per mould and making a rainbow out of the individual crayons...they look ok don't they? :)
