Striped scarf

This is a jumble of nylon, silk, cotton, merino wool, and microfiber. It turned very bumpy but soft from the sublime merino wool. See photos for yarns used. I also used a bamboo 8mm hook and the stitches are all half double crochet.

Blue Wrap

Finished and delivered this birthday gift! It’s a wrap/capelet and I used two strands of yarn for the body: cashmere/merino and silk mohair. I didn’t use a pattern either – guess I should write these things down as I do them!

Super Soft Gray Scarf

For this scarf I used a 96% merino boucle yarn by Sublime.  It’s a little difficult to work with so i had to take my time.  I finished it off with a sc boarder of black/gray/white kid mohair.

First Crocheted Shawl

For this shawl, i of course, used no pattern! 🙂  I started out with just a basic granny stitch that spread out from the center till i thought it was big enough. It measures 54″ at the top (where i did a basic shell stitch) and 29″ down the middle/back of the shawl. I used a merino/linen blend yarn that was really easy to work with.

Gift scarf

Found some wonderful merino superwash bulky yarn called katia fabula from Barcelona Spain to make a scarf. I used a half double crochet through the back loop stitch which makes a nice ribbing effect. This will make a great birthday gift!

Scarf Project for Me!

I got a wonderful gift recently! My common-law sister-in-law sent me 4 skeins of this beautiful black yarn and told me to make myself something, so I’ve started it! The yarn is wonderful to work with and is making a beautiful scarf. It’s called Mirasol Akapana and it is 65% Baby Llama, 25% Merino Wool, and 10% Donegal. I had to look up donegal and it appears to be a kind of tweed yarn. I also looked up the web site to find out more about the Mirasol project which supports Peruvian schools.

Here is a look at the knitting board I’m using for this scarf:

Here is the scarf at its current stage which is from one skein. I’m using a rib stitch:
