Using Loops & Threads Woolike, double-stranded I'm enjoying experimenting with a variety of color combinations. This is an almost lace-weight yarn so even double-stranded it makes a lightweight, but warm scarf. I know...it's a simple thing. But I was craving doing something more free-flowing - just to see where it takes me. So far I'm liking it.
Of course, there's still my Arrowhead Afghan in a basket waiting for me to get back to it. With the cooler weather we're having this week, it's actually a perfect time to pick it back up and work on it.
But my little scarf is calling me..
Small Things blog hosts a weekly yarn-a-long that showcases many other yarny creations. Check out the latest.
I'm glad to say I finished and put in yesterday's mail a blanket I've been crocheting for a dear friend who's husband passed recently. Bob and Eileen were an "older" couple when my husband and I met them at church over a quarter of a century ago - at the tender and respective ages of 25 and 20. My, how time flies. We're now probably a decade older than they were when they first took us, and a group of other young adults, under their wings. I know it's a trick the mind plays on a person, but those seem like such innocent and carefree days now.
While that was a season with its own trials, the memories are sweet indeed. I hope Eileen feels like she has a yarny hug when she receives this blanket - and that sweet thoughts of days-gone-by, and prayers said by many today bring comfort to her.
