Another Stab at It



This is a from-memory-drawing of the my first crochet project; a scarf for my dad. I was 7 years old. I didn't bother with the mundane task of counting stitches to make sure it stayed a consistent width. Boring. But I did put a lot of thought into the plethora of colours of yarn I used. It had a fantastic number of wildly mismatched hues. And it barely fit around his neck.



In my late teens and early 20s I dabbled in granny squares and various afghan projects. And now after all these years, here's my second scarf project. It's for my little guy. I've taken what I learned the first time around and applied it this one. So far so good. Although, the bottom is a little wider than the
middle right now.




This Debbie Stoller has partly inspired me to get back into it. Wish me luck.

Hey Jackie - love your new hobby! Adrian passed it on and although I don't have a "wee one" it's still great to read and see all you do - plus, as a novice crocheter who has stuck to making washclothes, I just may go have a look at that book you recommend!

I'm so curious about crocheted washclothes ... do you have pics?

Let me know if you want to borrow the book to take a 'boo'. The same author has written on knitting as well.

Thanks for the comments!
