A pretty blue scarf

Whenever we take day trips or travel I like to bring along small knitting or crochet projects.


I like to keep my hands busy and needlework is a great way for me to relax. We just returned from camping and I finished this pretty blue crocheted scarf. I like changing up my scarves on cool fall days and in the cold of winter, depending on the denim jacket, coat or vest colour I am wearing.


This scarf was crocheted with just two balls (100g / 3.5 oz) of Bernat Satin in Lagoon using a 5 mm hook and the two balls made it nice and long. I made up my own pattern as I went.

The weather was hot, the campfire hotter, but this cool blue beauty had me thinking of Fall.

I'm joining in Donna's Robin's Egg Blue SNS party at Funky Junk Interiors.












I'm sharing this with Creations by Kara, for the Look What I Made! party.

  2. Elizabeth,
    I cannot crochet to save my life--but I can knit-I have 2 LONG road trips coming up in the next two weeks--I saw some gorgeous yarn last week at Big Lots--I think I would like knitting, alternated with reading!
    Thanks for the idea, and your scarf is lovely...
    By the way, I have been, over the past few weeks, trying to comment on your posts, but my blogger acct. doesn't bring up your comment box even after I F5 it 20 times--quite frustrating! I just wanted you to know that I AM reading your posts! I love your ideas and adventures, just can't make my comment "stick". Ugh.
    Hugs,

    P.S. Today I got lucky and got this box--who knows if it will post it. Sigh.
    P.P.S. I loved your last post and the new "curtains".
    Brilliant, you are!
