Making it my own

The scarf I am making is just a little different than the scarf I saw in the store that I liked. That’s the beauty of making your Owen accessories and such, you can make them just the way you like. I decided to go with all knit stitch instead of purl and knit because I love the look of the knit stitch. Also I went with a more neutral color because I am forever making things in bright pretty colors to find that I can’t wear the finished product because it doesn’t go with anything in wardrobe. Below is a picture of the scarf I saw in the store. It is pink and has a weirdly large lacy motif on one end and I really don’t like that. I’m not quite finished with my scarf; they always take me a while to finish because they are so long and I can only work on my crochet it my spare time. I am ready to be finished with it though because we are experiencing record breaking cold and it would be nice and warm.

You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks

Ok, so I’m not that old. But, I am excited to learn a new skill. I have decided to learn how to Tuscan crochet. Last night I was surfing the great online crochet community and came across this video on YouTube posted by thecrochetside that is a tutorial on how to create a knit stitch by using a Tunisian crochet technique. I love the look of knit and I know how, I just don’t really enjoy knitting as much as crocheting. After stumbling upon this amazing tutorial I got inspired to learn this new skill and I ran out to my local Hobby Lobby and purchased a brand spanking new afghan hook and I am now ready to start getting to it. I will update you next week on my progress!
