My lovely Aunt Sheila sent me a box of yarn!
How great is that!?!
I decided to say thank-you by making her a scarf!
The yarn I chose is from my own stash; I’ve been experimenting recently with different weights and colors.
My aunt is such a vibrant lady. I decided a light-weight yarn with variegated colors in purple, peach and white would suit her very well.
The climate where she lives is not too extreme; the weight of the yarn should do nicely in fall and in spring.
When I was done I thought the contrasts in the color were interesting. The ends have the same stitch pattern, but the color scheme looks different because of the variation in the yarn!
It was fun to make and didn’t take very long.
The finished scarf is 5 1/2 inches wide and more than seven feet long.
My Aunt will be able to tie it in a variety of ways!
People have asked me where I find the time to do this.
There are plenty of moments when I catch some time to crochet!
For instance, guess what I was doing a few weeks ago when I was watching the Olympics…you got it!
My Aunt Sheila is very precious to me.
When I opened the box of yarn I thought it was very sweet of her to think of me.
I know the scarf is just a small thank-you.
I hope she enjoys it!
In a later post I’ll share an item using the yarn she sent.
In the meantime to find out more about how this scarf is constructed, see my crochet blog!
