Watermelon anyone?

I signed up for a pink swap over on Ravelry. My Swap partner didn't crochet so I thought I'd make her a scarf inspired by one of Lucy's but with my own spin.

 After the first few motifs were done it was dubbed "The Watermelon Scarf" and the name stuck. But once finished it needed something extra so a little pink butterfly was added. Can you see it? Just there on the end. The butterfly pattern is from Suzann Thompson's book 'Crochet Bouquet'.

It's really a very good book. It has both written instructions AND graphs!

::While I'm on a roll with finishing things, here is the 'Nice 'n' Spicy' bag I finished crocheting awhile ago (quite a while ago!) and procrastinated about doing the lining for.

  The pattern is by Jackie Ebdon and can be found in Simply Knitting 55, June 2009. It really is a very easy pattern, I was able to make it while watching t.v. I used Anchor Magicline which is about 8ply/worsted cotton - very nice to work with.

Cheers!
