First is the scarf I made for my friend when she lost her dog to cancer. Her puppy was her baby, as she doesn’t have any kids. Joci was with them for 9 years.
SEcond is the sweater I was working on…thinking I might want to add a bit of fringe to the neckline…but don’t want to “overdo”…will ask my friend if she wants it…took 1 day shy of 3 weeks. I stayed up till midnight last night finishing it…TIRED mama today!!!
well…I don’t know HOW these pictures load…but you get the idea…lol…
I remembered on the way to school that I forgot…to post the yarn and pattern and such.
The yarn for the scarf is Homespun…forgot the color.
The yarn for the sweater is Homespun (TRYING to get away from this, but my customers love it), Sunshine. (there is a tiny bit of pink running through it)
The pattern is the Family of Sweaters in Lion Brand’s site. I just omitted the hood.
It is edged in Patons Twister…but I can’t remember the color.
I edged it in a chain type scallop I “invented” as I don’t crochet. In the purl of the K1P1 border I did what I think was a double crochet, chain three, all the way around, then in the chain three, I did a double chrochet, and chain 5 all the way around. This was on the bottom of the sweater. The cuffs of the sweater I just did the double chrochet, and chain 3.
