Finished Noro Scarf

So, what do you think?


Doesn't that color just take you away! I get lost in it. I am sure other crocheters experience this as well, but I get so absorbed in the color and texture. Crochet a row, stop, run your fingers over the yarn, do another row. I many times wonder if what I see is what everyone else sees!

I have to say, the price of Noro is hard on the pocket book, but oh...it is so worth the outcome! It is not everyday I allow myself this luxury. While surfing through Ravelry I ran across this pattern and it was done in Noro. It blew me away! My pattern called for one skein, but I like my scarves long...I used two skeins and I would recommend two.

It was so nice to spend most of my Sunday afternoon crocheting the final stitches. The ripple pattern is so repetitive that you can easily follow a movie and not mess up.

Let me share some more pictures of this lovely!



Draped over the arm of a chair...just waiting for that first chill of Fall to get here.


Of course I had to model it for you!!! I apologize for the fatigue on my face. My back has literally worn me out. On top of the craft show this weekend. But I am not too tired to snap some pictures to share. I have one more to show....

Yup, me and Phoebie! She wanted in my lap when I was trying to snap a picture.

So now it's that time on Sunday evening when reality sets in that I have to get up and go to work in the morning. Weekend hours are so precious...I can never seem to do all I want to get done in them.

This morning I was watching a recorded episode of Uncommon Threads, and it just so happened to be an episode on crocheting. OMG! They were making shrugs. It instantly had me digging through my stash in my head. I am in the mood for some of that action!!!

Oh...and before I forget. Here is a little scarf that is on my list. It's called Gulp. I found it on Ravely.

The talent on Ravelry is unbelievable...I am so "hooked" on it! LOL!! I have some yarn in my stash I think will workup so pretty in this pattern.
