Quick Crochet Scarf ~ Blue

This scarf I made for my beautiful bonus Mom and I'm sure is the first of many that I will make.  It is a quick and easy craft,  uses one ball, can make up to two scarves, but I only chose to make one and took me a couple of hours to make.  Be careful not to loose a stitch, the webbing is very hard to pick back up.

This scarf can be made with either crochet or knitting.  I chose to crochet, if you wish to knit, please find free pattern here

Free crochet pattern can be found here

I made one scarf from the ball of yarn, picked up five loops of the webbing not eight, crocheted till I had a length of 60", then completed the return.

Mint Posies Outfit

I just recently got back into crocheting, a craft my mother taught me years ago.  I thought my blog would be a nice place to share my creations.

My sister-in-law is expecting, which prompted me to pick up my crochet hook.  This is the first outfit I made.

Pattern book: Leisure Arts, Tender Touch Layettes by Sandra Abbate.  Outfit called Pink Posies.

Instead of making an elastic waist band, I created an edging on the top of the pants, allowing for a tie.  The tie I created by making a chain the length one and a half larger than the waist, I did one row of single crochet, then wove it through the edging.
