My Ten Pound Celebration Gift...

As I began my weight loss journey it occurred to me that I should do something to celebrate my weight loss as I went along. You know, a bit of motivation to help keep me on the right track.
For my first mile stone, a ten pound loss, I decided to make myself a fall scarf. I used an Eddie Eckman pattern from her Crochet Boarders book (see below) and modified it into a scarf. 
Here is the result:
This first picture was taken right after I finished 'blocking' my scarf.

A close up:
 I think the smile on my face says it all about how much I love this scarf and how proud I was to have lost the first ten pounds!

A full shot of me wearing the scarf cowl-style. My daughter took this picture for me and somehow managed to cut off the top of my head, but get her brother's head in the picture! LOL

Now I am just playing around! I hung the scarf up in front of my draperies to show off the colors.

I was so excited to have some fall weather arrive the other day and I took full advantage of the lovely, cool weather by wearing my scarf to work and receiving SO many compliments. A perfect reward for all my hard work!


  1. That scarf is just lovely! Great colors! CONGRATS on your weight loss and looking forward to seeing what you make when you hit 20 pounds! :)

    1. Thanks Sandy!

      I have actually hit a 40 pound loss as of last weigh-in, but am just that behind in blogging! LOL!
