I finished two scarfs last night!


This one is a plum and black striped skinny scarf. The pattern is just single crochets in the back loop to get a ribbed effect. Worsted weight yarn with a J hook.


This one is what I call my "Manly Man" Scarf. The colors are navy, black, maroon, cream, and brown. The pattern is alternating singles and doubles across each row giving a bumpy kind of result. Done with a J hook.

Both of these are for sale in my Etsy store. Check it out by clicking in the banner on the right.

Happy Friday!

The Next Scarf

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

Here's the scarf I was excited about. The pattern is the most difficult I've tackled so far and I think it came out beautifuly.



They're crossed triple crochets. The pattern is adapted from a book of dishcloths and is done in a sport weight yarn. The yarn is Baby Bee in "Sugar Plum Camo". Of course it is for sale on Etsy.

The next scarf..... its a striped purple and black number for my rocker daughter.


Scarf in Moss

Monday, October 26, 2009

Surprise! It's another scarf. This one done in a solid moss green color. I used a worsted weight yarn and a size J hook. The pattern is rows of V stiches, DC, SC, DC, then V repeated. It was very quick to stitch up.



For sale in my Etsy store!

Tomorrow, I think I might post another scarf lol.

Here's the halloween scarf.


I really like how this one came out. It's a very simple single crochet that's done in the back loop only which makes a great ribbed texture. The yarn is "I Love This Yarn" worsted weight acrylic in color "Boo!" and I used a size J hook to get a chunkier feel. The size is 5" wide by 56" long (not including fringe).


It will be up for sale in my Etsy store which you can find links for on the right hand column.

Next project is another scarf done in sport weight with a great pattern. Hopefully done tomorrow!

Happy Hooking,

Off and Running

Friday, October 23, 2009


I think I'm hooked (pun intended). I finished the latest scarf last night and I really love how it came out.


It's quite long, about 6ft and measures about 4" wide. It was made with Bernat Sox yarn which is a size 1 Super Fine. The color is camouflage. I don't think it looks camo-ish at all. The colors are a celery green, taupe, tan, and the brown looks a bit purply, so overall the effect is not very masculine at all. The pattern is rows in the following order: 3 rows SC, 2 rows DC, 1 row TC, 2 rows DC, then repeat. I used a size D hook. This one took a couple of days to finish mostly because the yarn is so thin that the rows are very small and it took a lot of rows to get to six feet.

If anyone is interested I will be posting this scarf for sale in my Etsy store.

Next project? Of all things.... another scarf! I might have found my niche already. It will be a Halloween scarf. Look for it tomorrow!

OMG She's a Hooker!

Thursday, October 22, 2009

Well the financial situation might be pretty bad, but it's not that kind of hooking! I've actually picked up crochet again. I've tried it a few times in the past, but never really got into it. This time it seems to be sticking. Also, I've developed a severe case of yarnitis. I can't stop buying the yarn in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby. So without further ado here is my first finished project:

October 09

This is a simple scarf that was made by alternating rows of SC with DC. Very simple, but I think it came out pretty good. It was made with a skein of worsted weight Red Heart yarn in "Artist Print". I used a size J hook.

My next project is another scarf done in fingering weight yarn. I should be done with that one tonight, so look for a new post.

Oh, and as for Cross Stitch, look at the link on the right, I've consolidated the WIP links into a single page, check it out.

Happy Hooking,
