I am still here! As you many remember we are building a new house and also put our current house up for sale. Due to contant showings of our house to potential buyers I have not been able to crochet as much. This is mostly due to have to clean up each day and not being able to leave my projects out and about. I have some great news though.... we sold our house! The hooks are back out and I am ready to go!
Today is also a special day for me as today, January 25th is my 1 year Blogoversary. I cannot believe a whole year has gone by.
Since starting my blog I have 69,986 visitors and I am so grateful to have people around the world to share my life of crocheting, knitting (somewhat), and living life with. My post popular posting is the pattern for the Never-ending Scarf (Infinity Scarf) with 2,784 pageviews - most likely due to being posting on Ravelry.com but I thank each and every one of you for visiting my pages and sharing in the crochet fun.
Since I sort of became a scarf factory this past fall and winter, I think it is very fitting for me to share my most recent scarf with you - a ruffle scarf. This will be sent out to my mom tomorrow morning for her to enjoy.
I followed this pattern to crochet the scarf: http://www.tipjunkie.com/how-to-crochet-basic/ scroll down to the middle of the page for the pattern. Some of the ladies I work with made this with the knit version of the pattern and thought it was much easier to knit it. I tried to knit it at first but my knitting skills are not up to par, so I picked up my hook and found crochet was much easier. I also like that the crochet version looks less like one long cylinder ruffle and more of a bunched ruffle. Either way I think they are both great patterns.
I used Red Heart Boutique Sashay Yarn which is just about out of stock everywhere. I was able to find some online but the rest of the colors were back ordered. This color is called Mambo.
I hope you are having a fabulous week and enjoy this lovely Wednesday.
