You're probably wondering about the title of this post. I have been busy crocheting scarves, beanies and cowls despite the insanely hot weather we have been having. My excuse is I am preparing for a cold winter. I have been actually trying to make things I have pinned on Pinterest (trying to justify my Pinterest usage).
Design: Chunky Rib Scarf
Designer: Being Spiffy
Hook: 10mm/US P
Yarn: Cleckheaton Country Wide - Milk (100% Pure New Wool)
I made a few changes as this yarn is about 14ply, so I only used one strand and I made it about 10 chains longer. I have a lovely model!
Next the kids wanted a big beanie that covered their ears and was a bit slouchy. They found some yarn that took their fancy and so I have made the first one for Amelie and Aurelia's and Felix's are still in the works.
Design: Unforgettable Hat
Designer: Crochet In Color
Hook: 5mm/US H
Yarn: Moda Vera Bouvardia - Bramble (70% acrylic 30% wool)
Finally I had been lusting after a large scarf I had seen on Pinterest and was so sad to see it was only for sale from Renaissance Dying in the French Pyrenees and the way the Australian dollar is and the cost of postage it became just too expensive to justify. Then a little web surfing one day accidentally uncovered a place in Australia that had two kits in stock at a reasonable price, with free postage (even better). So now in my hot little hands I have the whole kit with 75 different shades of very fine wool for Bohemian Rhapsody.
