Gorgeous Scarf

Isn't it nice when you find just what you're looking for? I mean, you picture it in your mind, you know just what you want, and lo and behold, somebody else had exactly the same thought, and figured it all out for you? I have been thinking I want to make something I can throw on over a T-shirt to dress it up, not a necklace, not a scarf, kind of a cross between the two. I had something white and sparkly, maybe kinda lacy, maybe kinda not, all pictured in my mind. Turns out Robin Chachula had the same idea. This is my version of her Beatrice's Scarf. I'm doing it in Vanna's Glamour white (diamond) yarn, so it's sparkly. I think it's gorgeous so far, if I do say so myself. I can't wait to have it finished. I know, I have so many projects going, but it's okay, they all get worked on. See, I need this scarf, though.

Here's Robin's version, in a pretty yellow. It's in the new Interweave Crochet Accessories magazine, which is chock-full of wonderful things to make. Wanna see?

This is the cover. That scarf is, um, interesting. I still haven't decided if I like it or not. Spread out, it looks better than it does on the cover. There's a better picture inside.

That little chain scarf is cute, too. I don't know if I'll ever make it, but I might, it could be fun.

I like Maria's Scarf, too. I might make it. I'm actually thinking I might see if I can figure out how to make it wider, and use it as a table scarf. It's really pretty. I find it interesting that the names of the scarves in this magazine are all possessive, Maria's Scarf, Beatrice's Scarf, Piper's Chain Scarf, Carmen's Jazz Scarf, like that.

I might make those socks, too. I like to make socks, and crocheted socks are nice to wear around the house. They keep your feet all toasty warm, but you're not wearing shoes, so it's perfect for me.

Lots of help making hats. Patterns, several of them, and an article called "Circle In On The Perfect Hat". Helps you kind of wing it yourself.
These purses are cute, too. I love to make purses. Wouldn't it be nice if they would sell like I wish they would, then I would have an excuse to make purse after purse after purse. I would be in Hog Heaven!
Look at all the pretty jewelry patterns. I am going through a thing where I wanna make crocheted jewelry, and there are lots of patterns here. Fabulous!

I love this book. I'm seriously going to make several things out of it. I think I'll still be pulling out this magazine next year, there are so many projects in it I want to make. And for less than ten bucks, I think that's fabulous. Interweave Crochet has a preview of the magazine (I have not put anything near all the pictures in.) here. Go check it out. Seriously, there are a lot of beautiful projects here. And I really don't think there are many, if any, that would take much time to complete.
And, by the way, I'm loving the afghan in the advertisement on the back cover of the magazine, too, so it's literally a cover-to-cover thing for me. Ha ha ha. That afghan is a free download here.
Y'all have a wonderful day! Happy hooking!

Ha! I've made the Chain Link Scarf!

I had no idea there were patterns out there. ;-) Someone wore something similar that was knit, so I wanted to try it.

Thanks for following! I'm following you back!
