Even though I have scads of fabric to work with, I opted to crochet instead. Four hours and the first two Batman movies later, I finished this grey and pink, lightweight infinity scarf that keeps me warm while I'm running quick errands or just lounging around in the house in my jammies. I gotta look good even when I'm at home right?

Don't the colors remind you of raspberry smoothie + oatmeal?

Speaking of oatmeal, it's been a while since I've eaten the stuff. I tend to take forever when eating breakfast, and when it involves oatmeal, forever turns to eternity. No amount of sweetness, fruit, or bacon will ever change that.

  2. I have the same jeans! Love your oatmeal sweater and how its off-the-shoulder! Your crocheted cowl is fantastic, I can't believe you made it so quickly. Oatmeal takes me forever to eat too, its like eating wallpaper paste :)

  7. Hahaha, I used to hate oatmeal when I was little. Try this: brown sugar and peanut butter mixed in it-YUM.
    Love your scarf! I wish I could knit.

  9. The crocheted scarf is super cute! I tried to teach myself to knit, but after knit + perl I got a bit confused. ._. They say crocheting is easier?

    And yay, you put in your lipstick color!!!

  12. you look perfectly cozy in your sweater and scarf. i'm always a sucker for oatmeal colored things. as for the real stuff, i always gobble it down really quickly (well, when it's mixed with maple sugar...). haha, anyway, i like the colors you chose for your scarf. soft and pretty!

  19. Love your sweater! I've been on the lookout when thrifting for a loose weave sweater or a combo effect. I crochet too! I was making threaded crochet necklaces for my etsy but it's so fine and so much work that I never got that shop going. I gave one away once in a giveaway on my other blog. Have you crocheted with thread before? ...you always look pulled together and super cute whatever you're doing.

    1. I haven't crocheted with thread before... but I get really lazy when I can't see results super fast, so that's probably why! hahah

  31. Love the new scarf! The colors are really nice. I'm a big oatmeal person. It has to be the right amount of sweet, with a hand full of fruit in it and then I scarf it up like it's going out of style.

  32. LOVE the handmade scarf. I wish I can crochet, I've heard that it is a lot easier and faster than knitting. The color reminds me of a raspberry sorbet, I think I might go buy some tonight ;) Have a good weekend!

  33. I have a cardigan this color. I don't know if I kept it or not, because I have NO idea how to style it. LOL I only eat apples and cinnamon oatmeal.

  36. Oh I seriously wish I was wearing this today! Looks so chic yet comfy... also, I swear to gawd, I'm just getting ready to go make some oatmeal (I eat it daily but only because I do work from home and it makes it mucho easier because I can stir the pot and check my email at the same time ;).
    I lurve your scarf too, Laura, and totally time craft projects by movie or tv show length. I had to give up on more complicated knitting patterns when I realized it was distracting me too much from my tv watching. Sacrifices.

    i love oatmeal, haha. the minis love oatmeal. and not the instant kind with all kids of sugar. just plain 'ol oatmeal with a little milk and some fresh fruit.
