I've got a hook and I'm not afraid to use it.

Woo partners Smiley

I should annouce, by the way, that I'm about to disappear off the face of the internet for a week. I leave Friday, and return Sunday of the next week. I'll be in Italy, which is much closer to, say, Kookaloo_Starr than I normally am. And yes, I'm packing a crochet project. I plan on making one of these:

I hope you have a fabulous time in Italy Cat9 & the Boteh Scarf is very pretty! Is it a complicated pattern? I'm possibly joining a scarf swap elsewhere & I'm on the eye out for fancy but not difficult scarves to make *lol*

Ask me in a week! Smiley

It's a chart based pattern. I think if I can nail the pattern once, I just repeat it over and over. We'll see.

Do you use Lion Brand patterns at all? I've had good luck with these as gifts:

http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60294AD.html?noImages=0

And this one took longer, but came out beautifully:

(They call it a shawl, but I did it in a lighter yarn, and it came out as a glamorous scarf.)

Ahem. Now back to your regularly scheduled granny square conversations...

Heh, I just made one of the Luna Lovegood scarves last week! I made it in Paton's merino wool in a blue/brown colorway and I think it turned out great! It's so different from the rest of the scarves I have.

I'm planning on starting my first square for KRB tonight!

And I just finished your first one, indigo_roses! Very pretty, I must say, even if we do have opposite tastes in colors. (Hers are forest green and brown, and mine are blue with white or black accents.)
