A New Scarf for the Old HB

So, the HB wanted a plain, black scarf. No special stitches, no patterns, I couldn't even add just a touch of brown. A plain, black scarf.

I didn't want to knit that.

So, I crocheted it instead. I haven't done much crochet lately and there was a time I prefered crochet to knitting. I'm crocheting one of the wips and decided I would crochet his scarf. I just finished a few moments ago while watching Pride and Prejudice on my DVR. (Along with some episodes of Knitty Gritty and Needle Arts Studio.) He hasn't seen it yet. I will leave it on his chair so he will see it in a few hours when he wakes up. And he'll need it. Winter has begun in Chi-town and it's a little nippy out there at 4:30 in the morning when he leaves.

So, this is all single crochet (except for one row of double crochet I threw in just to be obstinate.) Used all of the skein of "I Love This Yarn" from Hobby Lobby. I do love this yarn. It's cushy and soft. And knit up pretty cleanly - though I did run into a knot where they joined some yarn. No big deal, it got lost in the scarf somewhere.

He told me he would probably find his scarf after I made this one. No matter, I told him he would have an option between the black scarf and the black scarf.

What a nice wife he has. And the stash is one skein lighter.
Y'all know I'm gearing up to go shopping, right?

See... You use one skein and now you're making plans to SHOP for yarn !!! How does that work. I'm glad you did some crocheting !!! Just a few months ago, I went back to it also.

Ahh, that was nice of you!

Well, that skein of yarn has to be replaced. I bought black yarn to go with some other yarn for an afghan and now it's one skein down...of course, when I bought the yarn I had no particular afghan pattern in mind so it's quite possible I could make one without it; but why chance it? And since the skein died for a good cause it seems only fitting to replace it.

(This is how my logic rolls...)

Makes perfect sense to me!

One skein means you can buy two more right?

Beverly said...

chee-uh; your logic is quite impeccable. as it turns out, i will have to make a trip to joann to find a skein of sunshine state homespun because i will be short a skein...
