1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / scarf numbr 9,427 I've made... on: March 15, 2013 09:23:05 PM
ok, not true, just feels that way sometimes.   Wink This 1 is for my step sister.  I found a skein of Homespun when I was going through boxes here at my dad's.  The colorway is called Chippendale & the price tag on it is from Woolworth, so I've decided to call it vintage. The bear has seen better days, but now I'm thinking he might need a scarf too.

wow! That is remarkably cool! I kinda like it both ways, but definitely the first is cooler looking.  I never work with craft yarns like that.  The few times I used eyelash yarn I wanted to shoot myself Smiley

thank you, it's a pattern that works up really quickly & happens to look super fancy.  In fact, I just double the pattern & omitted the hood to make a blanket for myself Smiley

they are fairly easy to make, chain however many (I did 200) then 2 dbl crochet in each chain, then 2 dbl crochet in each dbl, and so on.

 this is a blanket I made for my best friend who is VERY pregnant.  I used Lion Brand Pound of Love & actually followed the pattern on the label! the first pic (if I did this right, is just to show the whole blanket the next pic is a close up of the hood & you can also see the shell pattern really well here.   the yarn is super super soft & the gorgeous buttery yellow color.  I hope the baby loves it!

this is a ruffly scarf I made for one of my best friends, she loves purple & green, this would be the matching hat that she has NO idea about! I decided that with everything my step sister & her family have done for me, I should reciprocate in some way.  This scarf is for her, the 2 hats in a previous post are for 2 of her sons, I made a scarf for my brother in law (forgot to take a pic) & I am going to make hats for my yougest niece & nephew who are twins. the last 2 are the scarf I made my step mom.  I used Homespun & just did a simple hdc tbl, the 2nd photo is a close up of the pattern.  She absolutely adores it! Random strangers stop her & tell her how much they like it & she tells them her daughter made it!

thank you so much! I have to really pace myself, because my hands go numb VERY easily & if I overdo it, not only do they go numb, but they hurt like the dickens afterwards.  The real problem is, that once I start crocheting, I don't EVER want to stop!

 A bit of background.  My mom passed away almost 10 years ago & my dad was left behind.  About 2 years ago, he met a lovely woman & last year they got married.  Somewhere in between them meeting & getting married I had major spinal surgery & lost the use of my hands for a long time.  While I was recovering, my Auto Immune arthritis really started to ravage my body, especially my hands.  Anyway, so my dad got married & I now have 2 step sisters, a brother in law, 3 nephews & a niece.  So I have not crocheted in about 2.5 years & I was missing it immensely.  A few weeks ago, I decided to give it a shot, even tho I have nerve damage in my hands & my fingers look like sausages.  Well, I am happy to report that I can STILL crochet, albeit in small amounts.  I made these hats for my 2 oldest nephews & they ADORE them!


The olive colored 1 is for my 16 year old nephew, who is a 1st degree black belt in karate & is pretty much a badass, except he loves his Aunt Smiley  The striped 1 is for my 12 year old nephew, who THINKS he's a badass, and likely will be 1 day Smiley
