First, I apologize if the picture quality is not good - I was having trouble with photobucket - I'm looking at a picture in portrait but when I click on it it changes to landscape.  Let's see what we get here.

Anyway, I've been in a crochet mood for the last 3 days and here's what I've done.

I made a scarf from Bernat eyelash.  I think this is the coolest eyelash ever!  I love the colors.  Best of all it only took about 1.5 hours and one ball of yarn! the colors aren't quite true - it's bright turquoise, deep purple, medium reddish brown and olive.

I also made another medicine bag.  I seem to have picked up quite a bit of apricot yarn...

This morning I finished working on this beanie from http://hatternique.com/ Hatternique.  It was the free baby cap pattern that I tried to size up.  I didn't make the crown part long enough before I started decreasing - still, it's an interesting little cap.

I really like the scarf!  Every time I go into the craft store, I have my eye on that type of yarn.  I must learn to crochet before Winter time

Recently was given a ball of eyelash yarn and thought I'd make a scarf for my benefactor.  However, it's so-o-o hard to crochet, as the yarn part is more like thread, and while I've worked with fairly fine material in the past, the fringe-ing makes it very difficult to find loops!  It also then looked like even if I could eventually work with it, whatever I might be able to make certainly wouldn't have much weight or warmth as it would have a much too "open" construction.  Did experiment working it with a regular yarn at the same time which helped tremendously...but what's your secret, tempost?  (Perhaps the yarn part of what you used is heavier?  The eyelashes shorter and thicker?)  Any suggestions?  Thanks---

the bernat eyelash is a little thicker than the others like Crystal Palace fizz.  But I work 2 yarns at once - the lash AND a worsted.  I used an olive mystery yarn I got in a bag at the thrift store.  It didn't hurt that I used the most gigundous hook (Q?) I could find.  From ball to scarf? About 1.5 hours...if that long.
