Hot off the Hook; That's the Spirit!

Sing with me a bit today, OK?  Ready?  (In the tune of Jingle Bells)

Rush, rush, rush,
    Wrap, wrap, wrap,
        Time is running out.

String the lights,
    Crochet a scarf,
        Wonder where the yarn labels went! Oh!

Rush, rush, rush,
    Wrap, wrap, wrap,
        Search a little more!

If Dee doesn't
    Find those labels
       She's gonna enjoy some eggnog a little more! Oh!

Ha ha!  We had a kink in the Christmas Tree Decorating department here at the CrochetWithDee homestead ... it seems all our holiday lights were damaged from the flooding in our basement (we've had massive amounts of rain during the summer/fall), so I had to dash out quicker than Santa's reindeer, Donner, and buy a boatload of new lights.  I had to beat back crowds at the stores -- is that normal this time of the year?  I seemed to have forgotten about the mad rushes at the various department stores since I spend so much time at local yarn shops and peacefully crocheting in the comfort of my home. 

Today's project is one of three scarves that will be given to a Teacher this holiday season.  It worked up very, very quickly, and is softer than a baby bunny!  It was inspired by a knitted scarf I had seen; do you like it?  I plan on offering the pattern for it just as soon as I locate the yarn labels -- perhaps they're under all the packaging from the new lights?  Hmmm, if you don't hear back from me by tomorrow, send a search party!

I love the scarf, it does looks soft as a bunny.  when you find the yarn wrappers would you give us the info?  Brand name, fiber content, etc.
