Ha! I crocheted myself a delicate and pretty scarf.
While I was sitting looping the soft bamboo yarn through my hook I said out loud "I cannot remember the last time I made myself something"
My big girl (model) said "you made yourself a pin cushion the other week"
Ah yes, so I did, but I hardly think that counts.
Anyway because I am so pleased with how it looks I am going to indulge myself with a few more pictures of it (and because I can hardly believe I made anything as beautiful as my daughter, you can see some more of her too).
Be inspired ~ make something for yourself. See what a few hours of crochet can achieve.
The pattern is from the book Stitch and Bitch Crochet ~ the Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller
