Finally......


.......Something to show for all my crafty potterings......


Ridiculous really, there is so much that I should be making that is not actually for me (this time of year and all), but I love this.

The pattern is taken form Nicki Trench's Cute and Easy Crochet. I made it quite long as I love to wrap around a lot. I used Sirdar Supersoft Aran in shade 825 - Mustard

This year has seen me introduce more shades of yellow into my life. I have issues with orange, and realised that because of this, I tended to stay away from all types of yellow, gold and mustard. So...this was my attempt at trying a new colour...and I do love it. It is soft, I love the pattern and I love how it all bobbles around the neck. I have made a few of these in different colourways to give as presents for family......but sheepishly, I love them all so much, they are hard to part with. Me being nicknamed 'scarf girl' by my workmates tells you what i'm like. Hummmmm, well, I can see several more in this pattern being made after christmas when things have slowed down.

I have actually just finished another scarf which I am completely in love with, and I just couldn't part with it. If I can get my act together I will take a pic. 

Woo Hoo.....my WIP's are slowly starting to get finished!

Have a fab day all

  1. It's beautiful, it looks super cosy on you. It could be something out of a catalogue. Mmm scarfy goodness!

    Also I love your header, love the snowflakes in the background and the candy canes, so festive, really getting me in the mood. Tomorrow we go to find our Christmas Tree, I say find because it always takes me ages searching for the perfect tree.

    Well done finished some WIPs, looking forward to seeing the rest!

  2. Oooh, it's beautiful, lovely! I love the colour and I don't recognise the pattern from the book so I'll go and have a look now. You'll be nice and snuggly when the cold weather comes. Look after yourself, my lovely. xxxx

  4. That looks so lovely and cosy, I keeping making things that I love so much I don't want to give away!
    I'm knitting a scarf in a very similar colour at the moment and it's not a colour I would ever use but it's for my mum. As I'm knitting it, I'm really falling for it.
    Look forward to seeing the other scarf.

  8. Lovely warm cosy scarf and a really gorgeous colour too. Looks very good on you. I totally get why you are a scarf queen. I get so much more excited about accessories than clothes and you can never have too many scarves can you? I have that book and that scarf is on my list.

    I'm not making much for gifts but I'm on hold at the moment as I seem to have lost my mojo. In the meanwhile, while zooming around the internet I seem to have started to buy up fabric for me instead of gifts for others, which is very bad and I must stop now. So far, I've been very pleased with the fabric as it's been a much better experience than wool buying off the internet - which has turned out to be very different in colour to what I hoped (and sometimes a bit scary or disappointing). The fabric has been as pretty as I hoped. It’s all part of a pre New Year resolution to be more disciplined and not so lazy next year and to make lots of things; knitted, crochet, sewing and anything else I think I can do – instead of just thinking about it!

    I have colours I love and if I am not careful I seem to veer towards the same ones every time. It's good though to try out new ones. I must admit to loving orange and it’s my favourite colour that I like to see my daughter wearing as she suits it so much. Me less so but I do wear certain shades. It's the dark colours I really hardly ever wear and I don't think I want to change that!

  9. Your scarf is fab, wish I could create something like that,
    I do not do orange either, I cant cope with orange flowers in the garden but I am starting to like Lemon, Primrose, ok yellow for the first time it began last spring when my baby ducklings hatched, yellow and fluffy! Love your blog!

    Take care
