Today is sunny and hot! I wish Autumn was showing her beautiful face here in Florida. I know so many of you are experiencing the beauty of this wonderful season. I wish I could smell the crisp air, see the glorious leaves changing color, and walk with leaves crunching under my feet. I wouldn't even mind raking a pile of leaves together, ah Autumn.....I miss you so much.
So on to some completed projects.
I finished another Crochet Circle Vest Shrug by Lazy T Crochet, check out this wonderful blog for lots of crocheting inspiration. I used Vanna's Choice yarn for this project as suggested. I am not a fan of 100% acrylic yarn, call me a yarn snob if you wish, and even though this yarn worked well for the project I am still not a fan. It just has this different feel to it that I am not thrilled about.
I had the same issues with the second vest as I had with the first, my gauge lengthwise was way off. But with crochet I think you can wing it a bit and just add a lot more rows. Because of this I sort of ran out of yarn, so this vest is not as long or wide as they gray one I made earlier. I still like it and coming in at under $8 for the completed vest,. I think it is a winner. Oh those Joann Fabric and Crafts coupons are a blessing. Save a few 40% off coupons and you have made a great vest for a very reasonable amount.
I also had a special order scarf for my sisters Claudia's Etsy store. You have seen this before I know, but I just had to show you again. I just love the sequins and the soft drape that weaving creates.
The scarf has been wrapped up and shipped out, gosh I hope the lovely woman who ordered it likes it. Don't you always feel a bit inept when someone wants to buy something you have made? Will they like it? Is it the right price? Are they going to be disappointed with the final product? Yikes!
This weekend I am bringing a bit of Autumn into my home. I am decorating for Halloween and putting my Autumn decorations out so even if it is hot and humid outside, I can pretend it is Autumn inside.
What are you up to this weekend?
