Good morning sweeties,

How are you today? Here the sun is shining, birds singing and I am in a very happy mood 😀

I finished yesterday my scarf and I must admit it is a very easy process making and the result is wonderful…

Let’s have a peek, shall we?The scarf , as you see here, is long enough to wrap it two times  around my neck… It makes a 208cm long and 23cm large…I think it is the perfect dimensions for a neck warmer 😉

I crocheted it using the leftovers of my Stylecraft special DK yarns I bought online from here

… with a 3mm crochet hook.

Now, I have to concentrate on my fairy tale blanket (the one and only project in my hands for the moment 🙂 ) and try to finish it before beginning anything else (that’s what I always say and never do 😉 )

Our “move” (to a new home) is in one week (on the 28th)…the count down has begin…I am feeling so excited and a little stressed about the coming weeks…cross your fingers that everything will go well…

And now I must leave you and go back to my fairy tale which I’ll show you the progress done so far next time 🙂

Until then, I wish you a wonderful weekend wherever you are around the globe…

Kisses,

Sucrette

A flower for a scarf

Good morning my friend,

How are you today?

I was so inspired two days ago after seeing the lovely post of Lucy about her new shawl project…so inspired that I took my hook right away and tried the pattern she used…

The pattern is lovely but I wanted to make a long scarf , something like a long neck warmer you know what I mean? and this pattern was kind of “bold” for a scarf…I wanted something “lighter” (Is that a word?)

So, I took an old crochet magazine and transformed my way a pattern made originally for a doily…and I loved it so much……so much…that I crocheted a flower and after another flower etc…with leftover yarns….

…so much that I made right away a graphic pattern for the modified version of the original pattern…

 

…so much that I want to continue making a long series of flowers to make a very long scarf I can wrap it two or three times  around my neck…

so? what do you think? Do you want to join in? You can make a “light” shawl with this pattern too or some coasters maybe 🙂 I have to leave you now and return to my new project 🙂 (so excited about it!!!!!!!!!)

Have a beautiful week end!
