The pleasure of a humble scarf...

I finished my scarf!  Just in time for this beautiful Indiana record-setting 67-degree December weekend! 
 
 

Such an easy project.
 
 
I think I'm a little bit in love with my humble scarf.

 

It didn't occur to me until I was well into crocheting this that I would need to add more rows to get this to the size I wanted it to be since I wasn't using bulky yarn, or doubled-stranded worsted as the pattern calls for.  So half of the scarf is improvised, but from the row where the open spaces appear, it is finished as the pattern is written.  Improvising was super simple.  I just added more double or triple or single crochet rows until it was about as wide as I wanted it, then I finished with the final 4 rows of the pattern.
 
My shoulder has been giving me fits for the past few days and I haven't managed to crochet anything else.  It's not that it hurts to crochet, but since I can't think of anything I've done to hurt my shoulder  I'm wondering if it's gotten into its sorry state because of my crocheting earlier in the week.  I really don't know.
 
So as much as I'm chomping at the bit to crochet some more on my Arrowhead blanket, I think I probably need to not be working on that big thing.  :^(

    1. Thanks, Tasha. I can't believe how much I like it, too. Maybe green IS one of my colors! ;^)

  4. Beautiful and elegant scarf! Have you tried stretching? Maybe it's a muscle spasm? I hope you feel better in no time!

    1. Thank you, Alina. If I could move it into a position to stretch it, I would. I can't believe the sorry state I'm in at the moment. And to have no idea what brought this on gives me no clues about what to do to relieve it. Trying everything I can, though, to try to get it back to normal. There's too much to do!
