Fulfilling a Need

I needed to crochet something. I had a perfectly good pair of socks going and I had the drive to track down my borrowed-not-yet-returned hook and make something.

I chose a scarf because when I started a cowl, it looked funny. It is a simple meandering pattern of changing color and mixing liberally double and triple crochet. The most tedious part is all the ends to sew in at the sides but I am enjoying the whimsy.

WIP: Le Hatte

Dear readers, never before has a work in progress been such exactly that. Find others here!

I wanted to make a hat for my Canadian friend out of sock weight yarn. So I decided to hold three strands together to make it go faster since he was soon coming(and because when I was making my second ball it literally flew off the winder!). Then I had to hodge-podge some patterns together. I am currently starting the decrease rounds and hoping that it will fit a someone!

I mixed Horizontal Ribbed Hat by Marci Blank from my Sock Yarn, One Skein Wonders Book with a bluky weight pattern: - Man Hat. Honestly it doesn't look like either one!

The yarn is from Aloha Blue, a very talented Fiber Magician on Etsy. I am never disappointed.
