Rettangolini Scarf

When I first saw this pattern on Facebook, I knew I had to try it out. The pattern call for fingering weight yarn, I am using DK weight.  So this means I only have 4 "rectangles" per row instead of five as it called out in the pattern.

This pattern will require a knowing how to do a chainless double-crochet foundation. The pattern does have a You Tube link on how it is done and can be found here.

The pattern for this scarf can be found here.

So here is the results from the kids.

Queen Anne Scarf

A few days ago I posted a picture of the start of a Queen Anne Scarf. Here is the finished product

I did the scarf as a road trip project. My daughter got married this past weekend and it went well.
I almost always do the Queen Anne Scarf during a road trip. It is an easy portable project. The pattern can be found as a free download on Ravelry.

This is just a quick project that I did one evening, some yarn bowls. The pink one is round, the blue one is oval, and the grey one is square.

Ripple Blanket

I had originally done this blanket years ago. I wanted it bigger so I got additional yarn and made bigger.

The issue is that I didn't remember the hook size and the new rows are a little smaller than the original rows.
