We’re having a quiet half term, full of tea parties, games, coloured pencils, short walks, and visits to the library and playground. Little Flower has eaten most lunches under the kitchen table, pretending she’s Mrs. Tittlemouse. And now she’s wearing fairy wings, leaping from chairs in absolutely sincere attempts to learn to fly. I *love* childhood.
We all feel like real homebodies, snuggling under blankets and being generally lazy. Perfect conditions for crochet!
Purple is the shade of the moment here, with 10 more royal-hued hexies nearly complete.
I’m making swift progress on my purple scarf (that is, when I actually pick it up and work on it, the rows whip up super-quick)...
However, I’m starting to wonder what I’ll do with the edges to girly it up a bit. Remember, this is actually another Manly Scarf, I just enjoyed the stitch so much, and I loved this richly coloured yarn, that I decided to make one for myself.
But I’m a girly girl, and I need something to prettify the ends. I’m not one for tassles or loose strands of yarn hanging down. I’m considering little pom poms, like those found at the lovely creJJtion, but will it work with chunky yarn? Hmmm...scalloped edge? Flowers? Suggestions please!
You’ve seen the purple, now here’s the rain:
Ugh. That’s not pretty. Here’s rain with an orchid:
Still grey and rainy, but at least a bit more elegant...
