Crochet Scarf

I think this is kind of cheating, but my first real post is of a crochet scarf that I finished today. The reason I feel this makes me a bit of a cheater is because this scarf has taken me MONTHS to finish. I started it in maybe October or November, but with holidays gifts and baking to do it got sidetracked.

By our New Year holiday it was less than halfway done. Once we were in Yokohama for the New Year, however, thanks to grandparents who were eager to see their only grandchild and a lack of cooking, housekeeping and laundry, I had lots of time to devote to it.

Once we got back to Osaka, however, it was put on the back burner. Again. On Friday, I decided that the guilt from not finishing it was encroaching on my enthusiasm for started any new projects. It was going to be finished by the end of the weekend. I worked on it on the Friday and Saturday nights as well as during K's nap time today. As of 3:00, my months long journey was complete!

It can be thrown around my neck like a very long necklace or looped once or twice. This is what it looks like if a bit squished, truer to how it looks draped around my neck, I suppose.

There you have it. My first real blog post blog. How exciting. As I do feel like I'm cheating with this post, however I hope to make a few more things this
week. I'll post when they're done!

  1. I love the color...I so wish I could crotchet and sew:(
    I could use one of those in this weather.

  2. Hey Cameesha, thanks for coming over! Fortunately it doesn't get too cold here, so a looser stitch is ok. I'm hoping I can wear it into the Spring though
