I decided to make a scarf… you know, an item I will actually use. *grin* It’s all double crochet, using a 6.00 mm (J) hook… simple but pretty. The wool is so lovely! It’s Patons Shetland Chunky (75% acrylic/25% wool), in “Blue Jeans Variegated” (purples and blues). I’m really enjoying working with it, and the scarf is moving along quite quickly (I guess that’s the benefit of using a large hook and chunky wool!). Maybe I’ll borrow the digital camera from the office and post a picture of the finished product when I’m all done.
EDIT: I’m going to try and remember to post the amount of money I spend on my new hobby… partly so I have a record, and partly so I can figure out what is a good price and what is too expensive for various supplies. So… today’s purchases:
- Wool (100g ball) – $5.99 x 2 balls = $11.98
- Susan Bates 6.00mm aluminum crochet hook – $2.15
I know the wool was probably more expensive than it should have been, but I really wanted something to work on tonight, so I wasn’t waiting for sales! 🙂
