An Experiment

I won this lovely crochet pattern (Basic Circle Scarf) from Olivia at My Favourite Things.
I admire Olivia's crochet work and was delighted to try this pattern.

Circle Scarf

I had two skeins of Alpaca yarn.
One in a solid blue/grey and the other in a multi color.
The original pattern called for crocheting with two strands and since the Alpaca yarn
was quite chunky -- I decided to experiment and see what would happen.
Would I have enough yarn?

Crochet Circular Scarf

Olivia's scarf is 8 inches wide and mine is a tad over 4.
I was able to repeat the pattern once instead of the number called for in the original pattern 
 and held my breath on the last row.

I tried it on today and I love it.
The Alpaca yarn is so soft.
I want to cuddle the scarf.
Perhaps I'll sleep with it tonight! 

We have more cool weather (cool for us) coming. 
I will be ready.

Wishing YOU well and much joy!

Isn't it a great feeling when an experiment works? Love these colours and love that you thought about sleeping in it to beat the cold! xo

I have a scarf in colors much like yours - I wear it a lot because it goes with everything. Of course, I didn't make mine. I wanted to tell you that your post on impossible pie got me to thinking, and I made my own homemade Bisquick. I've made spinach pie 2x - my husband likes it. Yesterday, I made a coffee cake with the mix.
