Well its been a busy couple of days and although I have two very almost finished projects to show, they are not quite ready as I need to finish stitching them up. And well we all know that would be the boring part right?
So I went ahead and had a practice run of some little flower motifs as I am planning to join Kashi for a Japanese Flower Scarf CAL. Here are my samples so far.....I am not sure whether to go with this or not. The scarf is meant to at least colour match a hat I made for my daughter last xmas but this yarn is better suited to knitting I think. It was extremely lovely to knit with but is looking a bit iffy with crochet to me.....what do you think?
Can you see the bits where it catches and pulls? I can! And it is bothering me as such things do. Maybe I should try using a bigger hook, this one is made with a 3.5mm . The yarn is 5 ply Merino.
My plan was to make it all in the one colour but I am not so sure now. Hmmm
My 2nd daughter arrived yesterday and last night found us all huddled inside around the fireplace as it was blowing a gale outside, raining and cold. Today was not much better. We consoled ourselves by choosing a coat pattern and ordering some yarn from Bendigo woollen Mills. I get to have fun with the yarn and my girl gets the coat. :-)
Later in the day I got a nice surprise when my brother and sister in law popped by with a little gift....
I already had some of the green Beetle yarn myself so now I do believe I will have enough for a bigger project. There is also some lovely baby wool in 4 ply in the mix. How lovely! The urge to start several new projects is upon me! I am however, trying so hard to finish the ones I am already working on, really I am. hehe!
Hugs and smoochies xoxox
LOVE, PEACE & HAPPINESS TO ALL
