This time, I again used Lion Brand Amazing but in 2100 Wild Flowers. And guess what... I'm working on the 3rd in one color - gray.  It's going to be hubby's!  He can use it for motorcycling when it gets cold, and I'm hoping it will remind him to ride carefully. :)

Crocheted Pumpkins

The fall is here, and I see pumpkins everywhere! I crocheted my pumpkins back in 2006. :)

"Multidirectional Diagonal Scarf"

Fall seems to have finally arrived here, and of course, my urge for playing with yarn hit. :D
I finished this scarf!

My yarn of choice was Lion Brand Amazing in 2011 Glacier Bay.   Glacier Bay... I'm sure every time I wrap this scarf around my neck, I'll be daydreaming about Alaska, the land I've never stepped into.   I even like just saying "Glacier Bay" for some reason. :D


The multi-directional rows of this scarf really accentuate the color shifts in this yarn.  This pattern requires only knit stitches (no purling y'all!), and basic increasing & decreasing.  Also, no counting is necessary for the most part of it (who wouldn't love that!).

My scarf has 32 stitches for 5" width with #9 needles.  I used almost all 2 skeins, and it was enough to have a good length.  I've already been working on my 2nd in a different colorway! :)
