While cross stitch is my #1 love (in terms of crafting), crocheting runs a pretty close second. Depends on my mood. And the weather. (Colder weather and cozy yarn just seem to go together). Sometimes it's just good to mix things up and put the stitching aside for a bit.
While perusing the Ravelry site a while back, I came across this scarf pattern that I really liked. After reading through the instructions, I thought, "I think I can follow this one", and printed it off. Well, a couple of days ago the mood struck, and the air was chilly, so I was good to go! I just happened to have the perfect yarn to use for this too... a ball that I found the day Bonnie and I had our shopping adventure. It was in the clearance section for $1.90 at Hobby Lobby marked down from $5.29!!
Even though it is considered a yarn for baby items, I found the colour and the coziness of it the perfect combination for a new scarf. As I started crocheting, I found that the pattern was extremely easy and worked up very fast which is a bonus indeed... especially since I'm sure my fingers will soon be itching to pick up that little needle again...
