Neighborhood trees

Friday Musings

Well yesterday started off with a bang- my husband and oldest were sick, and the little one (who is teething) decided it was the day to begin potty training.  Needless to say no quilting was accomplished.

During the witching hour when the little one was going stir crazy, I took her out for a walk around the neighborhood for some fresh air.  We’ve lived in this house for 4 years now (how is that possible!?!) and my breathe is still taken away by the lovely trees.

After the girls finally went to bed I started a new scarf. I don’t have a good mindless carry around project & I’ve been itching for an easy crochet project.

JoAnn’s scarf

I found this pattern, JoAnn’s Scarf, in a book from my library, Crochet One-Skein Wonders.  I picked up the yarn at Yarn Cloud, a new-to-me local yarn shop.  So far it’s exactly what I wanted- I quickly internalized the pattern & I’m able to just crochet. I made it a little wider than the pattern calls for.  My plan is to crochet until the yarn runs out, sew the ends together and make a cowl. I recently discovered I prefer cowls to scarves for their snuggliness & stay puttedness.

It looks like a dreary, rainy weekend in northern Virginia, so I’ll be here crocheting, potty training & taking care of sick folks. Hopefully some time at the long arm will happen too!
