Two shades of blue
I’ve been doing some crocheting since I retired and loving the quiet calm it provides.
Infinity scarf for Norfolk friends
Two strands of yarn
I’ve made some scarves for some wonderful friends in Norfolk and just finished a pair of mittens and a scarf for myself.
Neck scarf and mittens using Red Heart yarn.
Orchid and lilac in the scarf.
The mittens look large but they fit wonderfully and are very warm! I don’t think they’ll work real when doing farm work though! 😉
Beautiful and next project
Bulky yarn for a sweater for myself! Hope I start and finish before winter is over!
Now it’s time to teach myself how to knit!!
About four years ago hubby bought me an embroidery machine which I love. It’s an older model but perfect for me. I started making blocks of embroidered snowmen and plan to turn those blocks into a quilt. Here’s a quick view of some of the blocks.
Each block will have a different color scarf and I’m thinking about adding a new version of the snowman too. Aren’t they adoable?? I’ve not decided how to put the quilt together but thinking about borders of brightly colored snowmen and Christmas fabrics or just winter fabrics. I’ve got a long way to go though because I only have about 20 of the blocks completed. I’m finding it hard to stay with the machine any length of time.
