This is a repeat from a reply from me in the last post in this thread. But I wanted to tell about my good friend and what I did with some lucious yarn she gave me. Blessing are all around us. I wasn’t really feeling my best yesterday and her presence and gift reassured me that I’m loved by good friends. They are few and far between, but the ones you do have you should cherish. So here’s to my friend Francis. I crocheted the hug from her by making this scarf. Every time I wear it, I will feel her hug of friendship and be comforted.
I crocheted a scarf last night. I have just a couple rows left to do. Its a ruffled scarf to match my kimono jacket. Yesterday a dear friend stopped by the office and brought me some of the most delicious yarn. Its a merino wool and cotton yarn in medium warm gold.
Its very soft and awesome to work with. I couldn’t wait to get home and make something with it. So I made the scarf. She also gave me a ball of ribbon yarn in shades of dark and navy blue which I put in the scarf. Also a companion ribbon yarn in shades of medium to silvery light blue. I have a touch of that in the scarf because I ran out of the other one right before completing its row. It works out fine since they are the same yarn and similar in color.
I then worked in a row of varigated ribbon yarn I had of gold, cranberry, and rust. The row I’m on now is a beautiful fall red micro spun yarn, very rich and has a silky texture. I will end the edges in the wool/cotton gold. It will be a beautiful accent for the jacket. Those are the colors of the embroidered flowers in the jacket. I love it already and I’m not even done. I have some dear friends.
