A Gift Received And One Yet To Be Given

My good friend Pat gave me this knitting journal to write the details of my projects.



I have always wanted one! Thanks Patricia!


This is the scarf I went on and on about making.


Made of Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk(the tan part) and Cashmerino Chunky(the light blue). Both yarns are super soft and I crocheted it in a shell stitch pattern so it should be very warm. I bought both yarns at stix-n-stitches.


It is 80in. which is long enough to fold in half and loop through.

We will put our names in a bag and the name you pull is the scarf you get. I hope the Chalk Dust Knitter that gets my scarf likes it

Thank you for the kinds words about my scarf! I did a few mods to it by adding rows of dc to break up the pattern a bit. It's my new favorite crochet scarf pattern.
