I think I mentioned previously that I had declared 2016 as a handmade holiday, or at least as much as possible. I included some December birthdays in that declaration, so now we all know just how crazy I really am. It started with a crocheted scarf for my daughter, Sydney. She loves green, and although I’ve never made anything like that I thought I had found a stitch that worked for me. Check out the link: Slip Stitch Fabric
This took so much longer than I thought it would. It’s a simple stitch, but very dense. And I have no experience with a project this size. I used two skeins of Caron Simply Soft Camo because frankly it was the right color, but more importantly it was the right price. I think I’m starting to understand why so many of you experienced knitters and crocheters are fiber snobs. I didn’t want to spend too much on the yarn and end up not finishing the project, which was a real possibility. But this stuff was a bitch to work with. More than it should have been. The good news is that I finished in time, and Sydney loved it. She wears it all of the time.
Coming up next, Emma’s birthday!
