I really love Craftster and find great ideas here!  Kiss This is the first time I have posted a finished project.  This is a scarf I made using Moda Dea Espree "Salt and Pepper" and Patons Brilliant "White Twinkle".  I used a P hook and held together both strands for the entire project. 
I crocheted a chain about 5 feet long. 
I then single crocheted back. 
Then I chained 4 for the turning chain, 1 triple crochet into first stitch, chain 1, skip 1 stitch, triple into the next stitch, chain1, skip one, all the way across.  Then I single crocheted back into every stitch to give it a little stability.
I ended up with the ladder effect you see.  I know this is pretty simple and obvious, but I just wanted to mention that when I was done, I still had half of the Espree (eyelash) and better then half of the Brilliant (little thinner than sportweight sorta).  It naturally stretched to be about 5 and 1/2 feet long and 2 and 1/4ish inches wide, when I was done.  I am really happy with the look and also being able to stretch out my yarn to make two scarves.  I also think as shiny as this stuff is, a little goes a long way and it looks best as a skinny scarf.  It took me about two hours to do this, while watching Willy Wonka (the original one) Cheesy
Happy Holidays, Lisa
P.S. I also wanted to say that I got a instant message about a month ago from someone and the message was lost, I couldn't read it or I did something wrong  Cry  So, whoever you are, please contact me again, I don't want anyone to think I don't answer messages or that I am rude.  Thank you, Lisa

I love that. It's really nice! :::sigh::: I dream of being able to make something that nice. I just started knitting last week. I made a...square. I folded it and sewed the edges to make a clutch. LOL It's one sad little thing.

My husband told me his great idea for a website today. Crapsters...for people who want to craft but really suck at it! LOL Grin I didn't hit him but I felt like it. Tongue

it's always you in my big dreams
