Not a lot of crocheting to report on--I'm finishing up the scarves I wrote about in my last post, and also participating in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). And getting ready for the holiday season--whew!
I'm making scarves for my sisters, my niece, and my mom, all with Lion Brand Tweed Stripes yarn, and all different. We can't have them all wear the same scarf, now, can we?
My mom picked out the colorway "caramel," and I thought it cried out to be made into fall leaves. I added a couple of crocheted roses for depth, and accented them with some vintage buttons.
I'm using so many different techniques on each scarf, I'm thinking of designing a class around them. Here's a detail:
Booties made from an old pattern of mine (available through Crochet Today, only--I no longer have rights to the pattern, so I can't give it to you, seriously). I used Red Heart brand Shimmer in royal (blue) and snow (white). The baby seemed to like the little sparkle in the yarn. It's one of my early published patterns, a little more complicated than it should have been, but cute as ever, if I do say so myself.
