Yay Crochet!
sat 24 apr 2010

I have not been crocheting very faithfully this year. For the past few months, I'm only working on my scarf project on the weekend, or even every other weekend! Sheesh, like anything's going to get done at this rate!

But! I have finally finished the scarf!!

Keeping them warm!

(That's Polar Baby, Happy the elephant and Sea Biscuit the pink sea horse, modeling!)

And that's the finished scarf! It is a Single Cable Scarf, with ribbing on the ends. It is made with Caron's Simply Soft Eco string which is 20% post-consumer recycled soda bottles! The colour is called Denim Wash.

I am so proud of myself for finishing because it's my first "Intermediate" crochet project! The directions were difficult... especially since I have a hard time following directions ("wouldn't it be better this other way?" heh). But once I understood what was going on, I zipped right along without having to read the directions all the time!

Well. "Zipped" every other weekend, that is! heh. I started the scarf mid-feb. oof.

I had planned to make a  Snuggle blanket next. A new pattern. I've got a general idea of what I'm doing, but I couldn't find step-by-step directions. So I have a little bit of trepidation.

Which means I might not start right away. sighs.

But! I've found an interesting site that has a whole section of Vegan String!

  Vegan Fibers at Earth Friendly Yarns

How cool is that? Some are insanely expensive. But it's all for fun, right, and you can't put a price on fun.

heh. yeah, keep telling yourself that when your hobby starts costing the big bucks!
