Holiday scarf project

I had these patterns to do some holiday scarves. I thought they would be fun to try. I think you might either really like them or really hate them. I think they are kind of fun, with a simple holiday outfit maybe. Let me know what you think.
So they first one I made was elf faces. What happens is that they seem to want to curl, so I am trying to block them now. It looks a little like voodoo with all the pins in them. I pin them, spray them with water, let them dry and repeat. I am also putting just a little spray starch on them. Hopefully they will lay flat when they are done.

I think the gingerbread men are pretty dang cute. I also have a pattern for skates and penguins. We'll see. They take a little while to make. The good thing, was I was just able to use scrap yarn that I already had. So I know they are kitschy, but hate em or love em?

What I cannot honestly figure out sometimes is how in the FETCH you get all the things accomplished that you do!!! Good grief. You make me feel like a huge slacker. I like them, but would probably never wear them, how about that? I think Jordan would think they were super fun. But I think you could get away with wearing them.

I think you could, and should, wear them. I think they are very cute! My first grade students would think you were the cat's pajamas!!
