A Berry Pretty Scarf ;-)

The other day I finished a scarf that I’ve been crocheting for a couple of weeks – on and off.

I always like to have an ongoing project – something I can easily pick up and work on during TV time.

It makes all those commercials a little easier to bear! πŸ˜‰


The pattern is called: “Queen Anne’s Lace”, and I’m so grateful to Carol for telling me about it. (You can find it here by scrolling down the page. The photos are no longer with the pattern – but more will turn up with a web search!)

This was fun to make, and easy enough that there’s no need to look at the directions once you get going. I used Red Heart “Soft” Yarn – a medium-weight worsted acrylic. Ordinarily, I’m not too crazy about Red Heart yarn, but I’d never seen this “soft” version before, and decided to give it a try. It’s fairly nice to work with – though it did separate a bit here and there, but nothing serious. The real test will come in the future after the scarf is washed.


The color is “Berry” and it’s “Very” pretty!! I couldn’t resist the pun in today’s title – shame on me! πŸ˜‰

What are you working on these days? Maybe you’re reading something that we’d all like? Seen a good movie, lately? πŸ™‚

See ya tomorrow,


The Last Scarf of Winter . . .

I’m sure you’ve heard of the “Last Rose of Summer” . . .

so I thought I’d twist the phrase here to introduce:

the “Last Scarf of Winter”! πŸ˜‰


Enough with the cold and snow! I’m dreaming of a delightful spring and I’d like to concentrate on making some fun spring-time projects pretty soon – so this will probably be my last “wintry” item for a while.


I really do like how it turned out, though. This was another one of my TV Projects. The yarn is a fluffy angora in denim blue, to which I added a short eyelash in coordinating shades of blue and a delicious lilac purple.


I made it extra long, so it can easily wrap around a few times, or even be used as a hood/scarf combo!

It was 58 degrees here today – definitely a sign that spring is near – so I might just carefully pack this scarf away without wearing it.

Next year it will either be a nice new addition to my wardrobe, or possibly a pretty gift for someone else! πŸ™‚
