So Ok I don't knit.  I crochet'.
  Well .... I used to know how to knit (not very well I might add) and I'm toying with the idea of getting back into it so I can try to make socks like I see so many gals doing these days.   So who am I kidding???
 I won't make socks....but I can make scarves.  All I need is one hook and a roll of yarn!  
A few simple stitches!    So how hard could it be to whip up a simple scarf huh?
     Well let me tell you about that roll of yarn over there.  It's kinda pretty pinks....soft....bumpy....should make a nice scarf.   I thought!
So I started casting on the other day and worked up about 10 inches in a double crochet'.  
It just didn't look right.
It was too bulky so I ripped it back and started over using a triple crochet'.
This time I had about 12" finished and I just didn't like the feel (still too thick & bulky) soooo I ripped it back out and rolled it up in this ball, set it aside and decided that yarn just won't work for me.

I went to my very meager small stash of yarns and pulled these two out and started casting on (again using the triple crochet' stitch) and this is much better.
I have no idea what yarn these are because I've long ago misplaced the wrapper.  I know the dark green is called an eyelash yarn and the variegated is a soft baby yarn.
I'm happy with the way this is turning out and I have another colorway I want to do next.



Here's another scarf I've made this month.


Thanks for stopping by....

  1. My daughter gave me all of the bumpy yarn, as she could not crochet with it. I've been having a ball knitting scarves with my yarn haul ;-)

  2. Dagnabit, I meant to comment on this post yesterday, even wrote myself a note so I would remember...but still forgot...sheesh

    Anyhoo, I once loved to crochet too and am surprised the bumpy stuff didn't work out. I love all your pretty soft scarves :0)

  3. Love your scarf. My daughter Crochets and I know what you mean about that yarn suddenly being too thick. (ok, the scarf.. you know what I mean :) ) Hmmm maybe larger hook... triple crochet or more?? is there more crochet numbers? yep, you guessed it. I don't crochet :) Great scarf, I know it is warm!
