Hooky Goodies

You might remember this from a previous post -- some of my favorite things.

The scarf was started while Mr. Dragon was in the hospital. I collected lots of fun yarns (it was an excuse to visit my favorite yarn shop, Nancy's Knits, and fondle the yarns) and added them to my stash in an attempt to get rid of them! I just played. Mixed the yarns. Mixed the pattern. Took it out at least 3 different times until I took it apart for the fourth time and switched to a hook!

I asked Mother Goose (the latest in my teddy collection and my Mom's Day present) to model the finished scarf and she agreed as long as the goose didn't have to come along! So, here it is -- 50 inches long and about 5 inches wide. Crocheted with an I hook and single crochet. I am much happier with the way the different yarns show up and crocheting makes a much sturdier scarf. Crocheting uses more yarn, too.

I enjoyed making this scarf so much I decided to make another (I have lots of yarn in the stash) and here is Mother Goose once again modeling the second scarf.

I've just about used up all the pinks and will start on another color group. It's good meditation!

(Can anyone say Holiday presents??!!)

Joy to you!

The scarves are beautiful. You are so talented! I am lucky if I can sew a button back on a pair of pants! Love your Mother Goose bear too!
