First, I would like to thank you all for your kind words and prayers about my daughter. You are all so sweet. I know that God has a perfect plan and I will trust in Him and wait on Him to work all things for the good of those who love him.
We have had a couple of quiet weekend days here. I decided to take a break from the painting on the weekend and work on some crochet. I have quite a few odds and ends skeins of yarn. Some were given to me and others were left over from previous projects. I decided I would see what I could make to use them all up.
This is the first thing I made. I used a very soft bamboo yarn that was actually on clearance. It's a small scarflette. I will be mailing this out to a sweet young girl. I hope she likes it.
Another scarflette made in the same pattern but it looks completely different because of the different yarn. I love this little rosette. This will also be sent off to another sweet young girl.
I made this crochet market bag. I had made some previously but like this pattern much better. It is a free pattern sheet I picked up at Joann's but you can find the pattern on the Red Heart site. The handles are much sturdier than the other pattern I used. I did not like the raw edge at the top of the bag and around the handles so I did a single crochet stitch all around. I am quite happy with it. This is going to a special friend.
With the additional yarn from the bag I made a couple of dishcloths.
This lace cowl is my favorite. It was such an easy pattern to follow. The instructions call for a thick yarn and I used a thinner yarn. I added about 20 stitches to the chain and worked it in the pattern instructions for the rest. It look a little bare so I crocheted a rose with the leftover yarn. It looks beautiful. I am not sure if I will keep this one or give it away. I love to share the things I crochet with others.
