Granny Square Shawl and Vacation

Last year we were supposed to go to South Dakota for a vacation, but could not make because of my dad's health. This year we were able to go and I had a good time. I never had been to South Dakota and enjoyed seeing the sights to include Mount Rushmore.

Before my trip I started a granny square shawl. I finished it up yesterday.

Tablet Case

Some projects are created because I needed something. In this case I needed a cover to protect my tablet on an upcoming trip to South Dakota. I had a large amount of grocery bags and decided to using strips of cut up grocery bags.

This is my first time(that I can remember) using grocery bags in a crochet project and it would not be the last.

Knitted scarf

I made up a knitted version of the handkerchief scarf

Now I should of known that that if I did just a stockinette pattern that it was going to curl.  I had to steam it with my iron to take most of the curl out. I did an increase at one end every fourth row until it reached 30 inches, then I  decreased every fourth row until I was down  back to a stitch.

I did start another scarf. I am going to use a garter stitch to not have the curl and going to decrease/ increase every other row instead.

Crochet Kerchief Scarf

I fell in love with this pattern. This is the third scarf I made.

This pattern is a #caroncakes pattern, put could be adapted to be used with different kinds of yarn.

This is my first one using a variety of scrap yarn. What I like about this scarf is that the thickest part of scarf could be used as a hood, but of course, I would not be able to test out that theory until winter comes along.

Purple Hat

I have made up another hat. Purple is my favorite color.

I am satisfied with using 80 stitches and a size needle to make a hat that will fit me and most adults.
However, This hat is about going with the flow.

The pattern I used on the hat is not the intended pattern. I put the yarn over in the wrong places after the first two rows. I did not want to frog two rows, so I just went with the mistake.

Another Hat

This hat will make the 6th hat I had made so far in the last month. I recently had bought a size 8 double pointed needles so I could make more hats. I had miscalculated the number of stitches I needed for an adult hat. This had has 72 stitches in it. It is a little small for me, but would work for a child.
