Crochet Scarf of the Month

Happy 2009!!! I hope you all have a blessed New Year. I'm starting this year off with a crochet project. Every month I'm going to make a scarf. Some I will keep or use for gifts and some will be donated to charity. If you love to crochet then join me for this fun project.

The January project is is called Easy Lacy Shells and can be found here. It's a very pretty skinny scarf. The designer of this pattern is Sandi Marshall and she has some wonderful patterns whether you are a beginner or an experienced fiber artist.

I'm making mine from some yarn I have in my stash that is a mixture of earthy colors. I'll be posting my photo soon. Send me your photo and I'll post it here on my blog. Happy crocheting!


I finished my skinny scarf! (Modeled by my DD) It worked up really fast. I'm thinking of making another one since this one was (pardon the pun) scarfed up by my sister. hee hee

I think my next one will be another version of the Easy Lacy Shells listed above called, Easy Lacy Double Shells .

Now...where's my hook.
I finished my second scarf . This one is called Easy Lacy Double Shells which is basically the same as the first skinny scarf but doubled.
I've already picked out the scarf for February. Check back on the 1st for the new pattern.

Kim, if you learned this at a young age, I may be doomed. :) I do have a friend who offered to teach me, but I am all thumbs. :)

I gave you a blog award. Come by and check it out when you can.

Fun fun! I crochet, too. I managed to make five scarves for Christmas! One for my mom, dad, two for grandma (one is a neckwarmer) in AK, and one that I kept myself (it was SO much work! lol). I'll post pictures when I get a chance!

I haven't used up my yarn stash yet - making a scarf is a good idea! And I love earthy colors. :-)

I would love to see your crochet work. Lmk when you post them!

I would love to join in! Might not be as consistent as I'd like to be (picture little toddler crawling around trying to eat my yarn), but I love to make time for it. :-) Looking forward to seeing your next creations!
