This scarf went even faster than the first one! Even with the adjustment I made to try to conserve yarn, I had to stop one row short of what the pattern calls for in width. On the plus side, I used up the entire skein of gold yarn. I also had enough of the yellow... Continue Reading →
Snow Country Scarf 2 started!
Ok so maybe yellow snow isn't the most appealing mental image, but this scarf pattern was so nice I couldn't help but use it again. I started this over the weekend and spent a lot of my down time working on it. This is more of the yarn that came from my mom's stash. I... Continue Reading →
Snow Country Scarf finished!
It's finished! I am really happy with this finished scarf. There was just barely enough black yarn in my stash to add 2 rows of single crochet to the ends. Once I finished with those I decided not to do the crab stitch border. If there had been enough of the black left I think... Continue Reading →
Snow Country Scarf progress (2)
I ran into a bit of a snag with this project, because I ran out of the black yarn from my mom's stash. I'm attempting to fill in with some black RHSS from my stash, but it is not quite the same. Hopefully it will not be super noticeable in the finished object. Initially I... Continue Reading →
Snow Country Scarf progress
I always love how quickly crochet projects go compared to knitting. Usually I prefer the look of knitted items, but it is really hard to argue with a long, complicated scarf that works up in just a few days. Sometimes I have a hard time getting motivated to work on crochet projects, but this one... Continue Reading →
Snow Country Scarf started!
I know I just said that I was going to try to wait to start anything new until I got closer to finishing my sweater, but I couldn't resist the inspiration to start this scarf. Plus, starting a crochet project was one of my goals for this month, so this is really a good thing,... Continue Reading →
Among the Trees finished and blocked!
I finally blocked it over the weekend and now I get to show off the finished project! It is so magical to me how much of a difference blocking makes. With the lace all opened up you can really see the beautiful leaf pattern very clearly. I am so in love with this scarf, I... Continue Reading →
Among the Trees (mostly) finished!
I did it! It looks so amazing and I'm so very happy with it!! There was just a tiny ball of yarn left when I finished, definitely not enough for another full pattern repeat. It is so satisfying when a project works out that way. I still need to block it, but sadly that will... Continue Reading →
Among the Trees (33)
Almost there! I'm officially on the last pattern repeat, and it looks like I should have plenty of yarn. There's still quite a few finishing rows to do after this repeat, but they have little to no lace so they should go fast. Hopefully I can get it done this weekend!
Among the Trees (32)
Inch inch inch. I'm getting closer, and the closer I get the more impatient I get. I didn't have much time to work tonight so I'm annoyed at myself for it. Have to keep reminding myself that any progress is still good! This will be done before I know it and then I'll be sad... Continue Reading →
Among the Trees (31)
I had a very easy evening and got a lot of knitting done. I'm officially on pattern repeat 36 out of 37! It is close enough to the end that I am eyeing the remaining yarn and telling it kindly but firmly that it must last to the end of the project. No yarn chicken... Continue Reading →
Among the Trees (30)
Here is the scarf all rolled up. It is approaching a respectable scarf length of 45 inches. I really can't wait to finish so I can see how good it looks once it is blocked!
