Alpine Frost Scarf

Love, love, love this yarn Berroco Folio in the colorway Cushing. The softness made it hard to put down once started. The pattern was in Interweave Crochet, Winter 2008. Beginning at one side until I used 1/2 the yarn, then with the remaining yarn, joined back on the starting edge to complete the other side, so I would have matching finished edges and finally added a picot edge to both ends. The pin is from local second hand shop.

Years ago I bought a gray winter coat thinking it could be a blank canvas for any colorful accessories I could come up with and this scarf will be great with it.

Irish Chevron Scarf

Back in Summer 2013, we visited Ireland and I found some souvenir yarns. I wanted a project where I was able to use them all but living in Florida – a broiling Aran sweater doesn’t make much sense. Settling on a free chevron scarf pattern by Claire Mitchell, I used my yardage counter and divided up the yarn so I wouldn’t have to count any rows, since we would be driving in the car and I get quite car sick enough, thank you. Five color skeins were divided by 2 for two large stripes of each. The cream white was divided by 10 to make nine smaller stripes between the colors plus some fringe. No row counting. Love that. Finished, it measures 108″ including fringe. Love the colors, but the yarn was a bit itchy. I will try blocking it again with a better soaking agent when I find one (recommendations are welcome!).

Summer Linen Destash Top

Made a top from old-weird-splitty-linen-yarn (MaggiKnits Maggi’s Linen) that I really needed to either use, or toss. No pattern, just my crazy idea, but I cleared out a good amount of drawer space in my yarn dresser. (Just in time to stash some hand dyed from a friend)

“Yarn Diet? What’s a yarn diet?” Like any diet, I just can’t seem to follow it. – LOL

Autumn Leaves Baby Sweater

I’ve made this a few times – LOVE the pattern. Great baby gift. I found the fabric covered buttons on Etsy at HowBeadyful and they are the 1/2″ ones. Too sweet. One is a baby gift, I have the others on reserve as stand-by baby gifts I guess. Like the 2 pink ones I’ve made before, here and here. Told you I enjoyed this pattern.

These were made in various washable DK weight yarns…

French Cancan, CABLES!

LOVE cables and just about anything that has them. This pretty pattern was actually fun to make. About the time you’re bored with the garter stitch body, the edging starts and it’s kind of fun to do, so it went by faster than I expected. The yarn is acrylic Kraemer Yarns Perfection DK, so it’s washable. Planning to use this as a winter bulky scarf, so I like washable and I’ll make it again, but with a nicer yarn – someday.

Camp Loopy 2014

I always look forward to Camp Loopy, but this year, between school and side projects, making gifts and so many family commitments – I just need to sit this one out. Hard to do. I keep looking at the posts, putting things in my shopping cart, but then hitting the (X) and going to bed. I know I’m too busy, but it’s fun and I’ll miss it. Just going to have to get over it.

Dishcloth mania

Decided to try to de-stash some leftover cotton and make some dishcloths for friends and upcoming gifts I’m going to need. The knit ones are from the Double Bump Dishcloth pattern and the square ones are a vintage pattern from my mother.

Small Flower Afghan

This was a fun little blanket made from Lion Brand Heartland yarns. LOVE the colors this new yarn offers and it fluffs quite a bit after the first washing/drying.

The motifs are a free pattern download found here.

More train crochet – Diamond Exchange Scarves

Wow, these 2 days a week on the train are really turning out to be a great thing. The only downside can be the delays. Sometimes as long as an hour, but I’ve never met a knittor or crocheter who minds a wait as long as they have a project bag with them. I’m no exception. My kids are grown, so no one misses me if I’m a little late but so far, and I haven’t really experienced a huge delay – or 90+ degree heat yet – but for now, I’m a happy train commuter tapping my feet and moving my crochet hook in time to some tunes. Life is good.
