I decided to learn a new stitch for this scarf. It’s called a Suzette stitch and it’s very easy. You can see the tutorial on YouTube. https://youtu.be/52-uPg-0MAo For this scarf I used Mochi by Berroco yarns. I’m interested to try this stitch using other types of yarn to see how it turns out!
Purple mini Afghan

This wrap is a wavy pattern that I basically just made up. I purchased this beautiful ultra light lopi at the southeast animal fiber fair and it was dyed in dewberry so the color is very unique.

This is a hat I made for a one-year-old using this pattern for 12-24 months in half double crochet. I used the entire skein of Mochi Plus Violets Rainbow yarn and turned out really great! Another gift finished 🙂 And here's a photo of Jin in his new little birthday hat!

Made this Clemson colors dishcloth this morning in bamboo and cotton yarn. I used the Tunisian simple stitch and did a basic crochet border.
