The Creative Process...

I thoroughly enjoyed working on this little scarf. It started a bit out of boredom. I do not do well on idle, my hands must stay busy!

I find myself like this once I finish up a project, and with the completion of my last couple of scarves, which were knit, I found myself missing my crochet hook! So, rambling through my yarn basket I picked up a skein of red acrylic yarn, and the rest is before you!

I used a half double crochet, followed by a row of single crochet in white...continuing in this pattern. So simple to do, you could continue with the pattern for however wide you wish to make the scarf.
I should have photographed it as a belt, because it is adorable worn that way! Maybe the next one I do. I am really liking the obi belts I see on etsy, of course they are all in fabric and sewn on a could I transform that to crochet??

This is how my creative process starts...well, first of all I do have a picture in my head of how I would like something to turn out. But sometimes when I start working I change things. Either way, it is fun to watch something come together before your eyes.

The whole weekend is before me, and I am trying to decide what I want to work on. It seems nuts to work on scarves this time of year...but I can't help it!

Happy Creating!

Love the scarf, I have made some, but not in half double crochet.
I am start to feel like crocheting again... the only problem is the lack of time... I've been so tired lately - Gee!
