Be still my heart! My daughter is actually requesting I make something for her! (She is very, very picky and our tastes are totally different, so her request means she’s placing some amount of trust in me that we will be on the same page of what she wants or needs.)
I had her log into Ravelry to find a pattern, and she picked two possibilities. Both crochet!
Rather than say no, I took a deep breath, bought the patterns, some yarn, and a Crochet instructional book. I was able to order these online as there were two weeks before she would be coming home again for Winter Break.
I decided upon the Signature Infinity Scarf by the Crochet Designer “Don’t Get It Twisted.”
Now that she’s home for Winter Break, LD has been busy making gifts for her Sorority “Little” and had to run to the local crafts store, where she also bought the crochet hook for me. She’s home from school for 3 1/2 weeks, so I’d better learn how to crochet and make this scarf.
And I did!
I was about 75% through when I realized the pattern called for Super Bulky weight, and I had purchased Bulky weight. Ah, well, life goes on.
Are you sitting down? I’ve finished the project….and LD loves it…and is wearing it! (to counterbalance the “Mom, this house is sooo cold” attitude.)
Of course, she wouldn’t pose for the camera, so here I am, enjoying it so much that I’m contemplating making one for myself!
Hard to smile when performing a selfie. But still nice & warm, and I want one! Just need to decide … what color? …and here we go, again…
