More crochet madness

What can I say?! I'm addicted to crochet projects now.


Just as well, I was bunged up again with a bug of sorts last week. I was so lethargic, I only had enough energy for repetitive wrist action.


This one's a scarf for the kiddo, made with one ball of Grignasco Bambi Merino Extrafine in an eye-popping shade of melon (although I think they've called it "salmon").


The pattern is just a simple sequence of chains and single crochet stitches from this craft book. Here's a better view.


Since I'm feeling much better today, I better go cuddle the sewing machine. It's feeling a tad neglected. And while we're at it, there's a pile of housie chores that I've been avoiding. Methinks I need to take the blinkers off.

Cheerio!

It's just beautiful Jade. I love the chunky roundness of crochet stitches. That is one of my favourite colours.

I'm sorry, I can't notice the scarf for that cute little bub -- she's getting so big! Look at her looking at her new scarf -- she's smitten! Oh, there's a picture of just the scarf -- now I can look. Very, very nice -- and it looks good and warm!

Bet you're wondering who future mrs. k is ROFLOL. Apparently my future DIL was on this computer earlier and I missed it -- I'm hoping you and Nicolette are the only places I've been since I got on LOL!

Wow Jade, you are getting addicted to crochet indeed and it looks great again! The colour is really yummy and looks adorable on the bub! I need to cuddle my sewing-machine. I have hardly used on it and I have a workshop machine-quilting this week....

I love it! Makes me want to pick up that crochet hook and get stitching. And yes, melon, not salmon. I'm with you.

I love the scarf - such a great colour and so perfectly crocheted!! Bub looks great! Yarn can become a serious addiction - take it from one whose house is slowly being overcome!!

See? that's why I love crochet... it's soooo... nice. The scarfs never curl up at the edges. And the repetitiveness of it...? so soothing.

great job.
