Cathy, over at Nanacathydotcom, does Knit & Natter Fridays, and she also crochets, so I’ll join in with my ickle quandary.
Just last night I was working on this little scarf, using up some stashed yarn left over from a shawl I finished some time ago… Oh, dear, it was July 2009 in Chicago… Better late than never.
I decided not to do a hat, and already have a shawl… a scarf seemed appropriate.
Decided to try some rows of single then double crochet (that’s American for double & treble crochet in U.K.) to see if I liked it. I don’t.
Then I realised I could ask my dear readers whilst tying in with Cathy’s post — goody!
Now what to try instead? I’m not bothered by frogging the whole thing, and think probably one airy stitch might be the best, considering the colour changes.
I say ‘airy’ because upon washing, the shawl did felt up a bit, and it was originally quite airily stitched.
What do you all think? Puh-lease make any suggestions that come to mind as your assistance is so much appreciated!
The yarn is hand painted 50% merino/50% silk “Precious Aida Pastel” bought at slashed end-of-supply sale in my old, now sold, Chicago neighbourhood store.
It does feel yummy. I couldn’t resist it despite including that lavender (?) which I normally never go near.

the small left-over ball
together–don’t they look different?
It’s almost ten in the morning here across the pond, and I’m finishing a cuppa whilst editing this. Those of you in Blighty must be finishing lunch. I usually read (e)mail at breakfast and only just realise how British that sounds.
Should be off soon on this cloudy and too-warm-for-February Friday. Guess we’re in the season of daily 20-degree temp shifts. Sigh. Time to pull out summer dresses. Double sigh.
❤ ❤ Happy Weekend Knitting-Sewing-Crocheting, Lovelies! ❤ ❤
P.S.Looking at this again I may just frog it soon as I’ve got this posted!
