Wanna see what my secret project was?

I made an awesome scarf for the Sanrio 50th Anniversary celebration!

I also made 3 copies of a simpler version with only 5 characters, and everything sold out already.

The venue/event was AMAZING. I don’t have my camera cable with me, so I will post more photos when I get home!

And here’s what I made the night before in the hotel to wear:

I was going to make a whole top and wear it with black bloomers, but I didn’t realize how much yarn a top takes! I only make scarves! HAHa!! So I could only make this weird boob cover, and then I wore it over an I’m Your Present dress. I feel like I look 50 years old in this picture.

Tonight is my last LA book signing. It’s at Stories in Echo Park on Sunset. We rented a projector and a screen so we could run my Power Point presentation :).

  33. Hello Katie says:

    Such a cute scarf! :) I would love to own one! I’m wondering if it’s supposed to be Sanrio character cupcakes?! If so it probably makes the scarf about a million times cuter!
    xoxo, Katie.

    OH MY!!! I literally squealed when I saw that scarf and again when i saw the “boob cover”. I am a girl of the 80′s so I spent every cent I had on HELLO KITTY stuff!!! I’ve been crocheting for a year and am amazed that you can just make your own patterns!! I would love to be able to just sit down and make something!!!! PS-you do NOT look 50!!! My Mister is 52 and that looks nothing like him :)
