So I finally finished that purple crochet scarf that I just made up a pattern for (single, double, half double on repeat until I ran out of yarn).
It turned out pretty good, not as long as I would have liked (I should have made it narrower) but still looks good if I do say so myself.
Here's a closer view of my stitches. They are all pretty consistent, which makes me happy. What doesn't make me happy is that I wasn't focusing part of the time and I ended up with one end being narrower than the other:
See? I wasn't paying attention and I know that I forgot to chain one at the end of the row so I ended up making a few rows shorter than the rest. I'm also not terribly good at counting my stitches in crochet. Knitting yes, crochet no. Not sure why but that is a long philosophical discussion for another day.
Nevertheless to the "untrained" eye I think it looks fabulous and because this is a gift, the person I'm giving this to should damn well appreciate it, narrow end and all. 😉
Still working on my knitting project, which I am woefully behind on but that one is now also starting to take shape so I am feeling more confident about it.
Hope your day is filled with inspiring ideas.
