Amy is really quiet and shy. When she saw the bag she said, "it is colorful." I was worried it might be too bright for her, although she was wearing a multi-colored striped shirt at the time. She brought it to church yesterday, so that's a good sign.
I started to get the "itch" to crochet Sunday afternoon. Knowing I already have three bibs and no new colors of thread, I opted to start a lacy scarf. I searched the internet and found this free pattern. I was wanting something feminine, light, and summery (even though summer is almost over) and this seemed to fit the bill.
After several hours, this is all I had done:
One website suggested that stylish scarves are now about 95" long. 95 inches?!? I don't think I will make it that long. I think I'll measure some of my winter scarves and make adjustments. It looks narrow, which I wanted, but it will be edged, too, so it will make it a little wider. The pattern says the finished width is 5 1/4", but I used cotton thread instead of yarn. (And I really wish I had enough of white. I was afraid I would run out of white before I made it into a decent-length scarf.)
And on Saturday afternoon, I headed to a K-Mart in search of Martha Stewart tea towels. I was happy to see they were 10% off. So I bought more than I should ...
This is what $31 of tea towels looks like:
