My first crochet scarf!!

Tuesday, February 1, 2011

My first real crochet project is finished!
I'm so excited to show and tell about it.

 Here it is when it was just a wee little thing ..
(it's just the single crochet stitch all through it)


..and I was so impressed with myself because it was SO LONG!
.. and getting longer.. 



*ehem* 
Introducing... 
My new favorite scarf!



 It's a little wider than I wanted it to be, but I actually don't mind it! 
And it's pretty comfy too! AND it will go with lots :) That makes me happy.
It curls a bunch, .. not sure how to fix that, but it kind of adds some character so I'm okay with it.



Like my scarf modeling skills?? 
Oh yeah!




How exciting is it that I can say "I made that!" 
about something I can wear?! .. pretty exciting, let me tell ya ;)


.. now what else can I crochet?!? ...

Congrats on your first project! My blog-mate Sharon and I are new crocheters, too, and we've had such a blast learning together.

Here's a post I wrote about scarves I've made:

I personally love the scalloped edge scarf because it's so easy with AWESOME results. To make one, all you do is make a chain as long as you want the scarf to be and then double crochet up and down the length until you're happy with the thickness--then you scallop the edges with a simple stitch pattern (which is on the post).

Whoa, that's a LONG comment... but I get SO excited about crochet!
