ribboned scarf

The other day, a friend and I went to Ackerman {two towns to the west of me} to a fabric store which has tons of notions, like buttons, snaps, elastic, thread, and such.  The woman who owns the store had some water damage a month or so ago and a large portion of her inventory has been marked down.  She's also rearranging the layout and so she's clearing scads.

So I bought ten rolls of very very thin ribbon for 99 cents per roll.  Since the regular price for this sort of ribbon was 94 cents per yard, I figured I was way ahead.  So here is the scarf I finished this evening, crocheted with baby~boucle from my stash and woven thru with matching ribbon.

I'm looming another with very thin baby yarn, Bernat Baby Jacquards, and some of the thin, Thin, THIN ribbon.  It's very pretty so far, and once it's done, I'll post a pic!


  1. I'm the kind of person who would buy with ribbon with absolutely no idea what to do with it....and you would buy it and think of something right away!


Thanks for taking the time and effort to let your thoughts be known!
