Child's Rainbow Scarf from LMKG
Child's Rainbow Scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, for my friend. 2 skeins of Patons SWS, in Natural Earth and Natural Navy, #9 bamboo dpns. i added 4 stitches to the scarf width. i love the way the striping turned out, despite running into several knots in both skeins.
Galena from Everyday Crochet
Galena from Everyday Crochet, 4 skeins of Aarlan Alpaca Silk, J and I crochet hooks. i made the 34" size and added 6 extra rounds for a longer length.

this looks much better post-blocking. it was all scrunchy and short, but now it is open and lacy with a lot of drape. the yarn has a lot of guard hairs, but is otherwise soft. the book categorizes it as a vest despite the cap sleeves. it's a little big but ok since it's meant to be layered.

  1. Both look great! How was the SWS to work with?

  2. I am in awe of your crocheting skills. Beautiful! The scarf looks great too, but I can imagine knitting a scarf. As for crocheting something that actually comes out the way it's supposed to and fits a human being... well, that's just more than my poor brain can handle. Amazing job!

  3. And you even crocheted it in a Galena-y color! Very nice!

  4. The colors on the scarf are fantastic - I love how the striping turned out.

    Your "vest" is really cute, although I definitely question the "vest" designation since it has sleeves. Either way, I'm sure you'll get a lot of compliments on it.

  5. Gosh, the lace top is just gorgeous. I am so envious of your crochet skills. The scarf is in the "I'd wear that!" category for me.

  6. WOW - I'm very impressed with your crocheting skills- Galena is beautiful!!

  7. You crochet beautifully. I love the sweater. If I could do that, I would be thrilled!

  8. Both look wonderful. You really crochet beautifully. I've seen a lot of patterns in crochet that I like, but I haven't been brave enough to start them.
