Lucky and I are both in down times at work - she because it's the natural down time in her industry, me because of the situation of the buy out and subsequent impending loss of my job. We have been emailing back and forth, and she mentioned the Orphan scarf pattern in the Summer 2009 Interweave Crochet. A magazine I happen to have. So I looked, and liked. I asked her a few technical questions, and here's where I am this morning: This is after ripping back 6 inches I crocheted at the boy's baseball game last night and switched to a larger hook.
It doesn't look like much at first - it's got that cramped crochet look, but a little tug, and voila! Pure prettiness!
It used orphan balls of sock weight wool, and is really lovely. I can see a few of these, maybe.
Dare I say it? I'm hooked...
