Reading Wednesday: Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles

This book was amazing! I read the entire thing in a 24 hour period because I just couldn't put it down. The author does a brilliant job creating and voicing the two very dynamic characters. This book follows a Hispanic gangster, Alejandro, and a preppy cheerleader, Brittany, both with secrets and home lives very different than you would imagine. If you're looking for a good read, pick this up!

Reading Wednesday: The Sweet By and By by Sara Evans, Rachel Hauck

I love books by Rachel Hauck, so I've been trying to read any book of hers I can find. She writes Christian chick literature. (Which is sort of like normal chick-lit (or chick-flicks), but Christian). I really enjoyed this book. It was intriguing and kept you wondering what had happened in the past and what was going to happen - the book switched between flashbacks and present tense, so you unravel the characters' pasts as you move forward in the story. This story follows Jade as she reconciles with her past and moves forward with her future. Jade owns a vintage shop (as in a store that sells vintage items) and is about to get married. But some things from the past are about to get in her way.

Funky Friday - Crochet Mobius Strip Scarf

The Music of Life: Mobius Strip Scarf

I recently decided to crochet an infinity scarf for my friend for Christmas. But (I'm fairly sure at least) infinity scarves are just normal loops. So I decided to make a mobius strip scarf. What is a mobius strip, you ask? It is a plane that only has one side. Which means that if you run your finger down one side of this scarf, you'll end up where you started and you'll have touched both "sides" of the scarf. So it's great for math geeks and those who want to be fashionable!

Materials needed
2 skeins of weight six yarn (I used Hometown USA: Grand Rapids Green by Lion Brand)
Size P Crochet hook

Directions
(I don't normally write crochet patterns, but this is pretty simple, so hopefully they make sense. Comment me if you need clarification!)

Chain 155
DC in 6th chain from hook, chain one *skip 1 chain, DC in next chain, ch 1. Repeat from * until last two chains, DC in last chain. Ch 4, turn, repeat from * across. Do this three more times.

You should end up with 5 rows of waffle-looking squares. Now, take your scarf and make an "0" with it. Before connecting, twist one end. Sew ends together, sew in ends.

Voila! I hope you enjoy this!
