Blog Design

I know, I know, it's all over the place. I can't stop with the curly-q's. I'm a doodler, especially when trying to figure out where my story is going or what is not working with it.

Will it stay like this? Probably not! But it's like this for at least a month...

Scarf project

I'm not sure how I got hoodwinked into this by my grandma, but I'm crocheting scarves for her to give to her siblings(and every other XX-chromosome person she knows). I'm 25 scarves (the photo below is a day old) into the 32 I've been assigned. Since I have so many, I've been doing the same pattern with different colors. I can do the pattern in my sleep, so it's fast with minimal ripping out of stitches.  ONLY 7 TO GO.

Different from the others, the yarn was super thin and fuzzy, and I love the gradient so I just went simple to let the material do the pretty-making. Actually, I have two of them now. Gotta love that $1 per skein BigLots bargain yarn bin!

This one is made from the RedHeart Sashay yarn. It looks like a ball of shoestring when you get it and you have to open it into this mesh pattern and crochet along the top edge. It works up surprisingly thick and is very boa-like when done. Super girly--which I seem to love when it comes to ribbons and ruffles.
