Now that they've arrived safely in her tiny little hands, I can post pics.
I attempted knitting a pair of socks with this skull pattern on them, but I'm SO not advanced enough for socks yet! Using dpn's has been compared to wrestling an octopus, and that's a perfect comparison. So I frogged that and went with the scarf instead. There's a skull and crossbones on each end, but in the pic the back is showing on one end. It's backed with black velvet, so I hope it keeps her super warm this winter.
I had some penguin fabric left from a worry doll dress, so I thought my NessieBabe would dig a penguin pillow with a white satin back.
