I knew it’d been a while since I posted, but until just this moment I hadn’t realized it was nearly 2 months. In that case, a little piece of catch up is more than due!
There’s been plenty going on around here, mostly crochet-wise, the past 8 weeks or so. It’s just a bunch of it is long-term, so there aren’t too many finished items to share.
…except these two circular scarves.
The first: That coral yarn had been calling to me ever since the project I originally bought it for (and which used very little) was done. I can’t wear solid coral by my face, or I look like a summer squash. But this one thick stripe of it is pretty enough to satisfy without doing awful things to my complexion.
I very much like how it turned out!
It’s a simple broken shell stitch throughout, which leaves it with a scalloped edge.
And the second scarf. When one of my most favorite people came through my house one day and saw the yarn sitting in a bin, she said she loved those colors together. I looked again when she left. There was enough for a scarf and not much else. Fate. And a completely enjoyable gift to grant!
My only hesitation was, the yarn (something from one of Tillie’s crates that had no label) was fuzzy-ish but didn’t feel especially soft. Fortunately, it’s one of those yarns that completely changes character after a wash. It’s perfectly cozy around the neck now.
Scarves. Simple, colorful, warm, and fun times two!
I still have those long-term things to finish, but at the moment, I’m feeling kind of knitty. I think this weekend’s plans will include a quick-satisfaction dishcloth or two.
