|Actually smiling for the camera for once. Really laughing at the photographer's impersonation of a fashion photographer.|
|Copyright dancing-girl on Ravelry. I just love the colours in this one. Made from the Helix scarf pattern by Stephenie Gaustad|

|Knitted with tapestry yarn using Nona Knits spiral pattern. I think I am sensing a theme of colours that I like|
|And this one is crocheted. The Sunroom spiral scarf.|
|This one is almost OK|
These however could almost make me change my mind about novelty yarn like this.
This has been an ongoing winter project, with progress going in fits and starts as enthusiasm waxed and waned. I got the bulk of it completed though on two train journeys to Melbourne and a long car trip (when I wasn't driving for once!)
Pattern: Better Homes and Gardens June 2009 Edition Bonus Bumper Knitting Book Spiral Scarf
Needles: 4.5 mm
Yarn: Cheap 8ply acrylic (from the Reject Shop)
Cost: $4 AUD (and I still have some left over)
Techniques used: Garter stitch short row shaping. No wrapping used on the turns though.
And now for Spirali's fashion shoot. The scarf was well behaved, posing happily as requested. The model even smiled (something which is unusual for me when I am having my photo taken). The photographer was perhaps getting into it a little too enthusiastically however. (Thanks Mel).

|This is really warm around the back of my neck. Mounds of ruffles|

|The scarf is really long but worn looped around twice with the ends hanging out.|
