I’ve been busy crocheting again, I just can’t quite get enough of it and I’m planning my next project before I’ve finished the project that I’m actually working on. It’s always been something I enjoy but it’s starting to become a hobby.
Anywho, I’ve been working on a scarf lately because I broke my one scarf that I owned – 25 years old and only 1 scarf, I’ve let the fashionista in me down 😉 I wanted an infinity scarf because I’m always bugged by the loose ends of scarfs!
So I made this,
I made it up by myself, I didn’t follow a pattern and I used two balls of wool at the same time! That’s the fist time I’ve ever worked like that and I’ve got to say I totally loved it.
After I had finished sewing away all my loose ends, I tried it on, Willow was watching,
“Mummy, what’s that?”
“It’s a scarf baby,”
Willow sits and waits for me to put it on and sort it out,
“What do you think of mummy’s scarf?”
“Awwww wow mummy, it’s pretty!” She squeaked a bit at the end, “And me wear it,” she said,
I placed the scarf on her and wrapped it for her,
” oooh, I like this, it’s mine.” She said,
“No baby, it’s mummy’s scarf, it’s too big for you.” I told her,
“No it’s mine!” She shouted while clutching it to her neck,
“No Willow, it’s too big for you, can I have it back now please?”
“No! It’s mine!”
“Can I have it back please?”
“No!” *runs away*
“Fine then, you can have that one and I will make myself a nice new pink one then.” I told her,
“Huh? Pink one?” She was curious,
“Yeah, you can have mummy’s grey one and I will make a new pink one. Does that sound good?” I asked, but I knew where we were going,
“No! I want a pink one!” *takes off scarf, throws it on floor*
“Okay,” I said, ” when you are in school tomorrow, mummy will make you a nice pink scarf, would that be nice?”
“Aww yes please mummy!!” *jumping up and down, voice going up an octave*
“Okay then, I’ll do that for you baby.” I said, as I picked up my scarf and she ran off back to her leappad.
So it’s sorted then, today I will start a new project, at this rate, I’ll never get around to finishing the granny blanket I started!
