Well last night was Friday-Night-Sew-In. I took the opportunity to finish crocheting my scarf that I have been working on all week. I finished the last row with about 2 inches of wool to spare. I used the "Cleckheaton" wool that I purchased last year from Good Sammy's(op-shop) There were six balls in the bag for $6.50 which I think is a fantastic price. The photo really doesn't show up the red colour properly, it is more of a bright red apple colour. The scarf measures 170cm in length. I used a size 4.00 crochet hook.If you would like to crochet one the pattern is very easy.
Foundation chain. Work 31chain.
Foundation row,(right side) 1dc into 3rd chain from hook,*1tr into next ch,1dc into next ch:rep from * to end,turn.
Row 1. 1ch,1dc into first tr,1tr into next dc,*1dc into next tr,1tr into next dc,rep from * to end turn,
Keep on repeating Row 1 until scarf is desired length.
Please remember that these crochet instructions are Australian. I know that some countries the double crochet is different.
If you need any help,please ask.
It is a very simple pattern. You can even make 6 inch square blocks of different colours and join them up into a rug.
As I only had one craft photo to share today I quickly went out and took some photo's of the garden. The "Pierre de Ronsard" standard rose is coming into bloom. It is just a pity that it is only lightly scented,though the amount of blooms does make up for this.
Hollyhocks grow everywhere here at Kainga. I do mean everywhere,these ones are in the veggie garden. The bees are grateful for the pollen,someone is getting some nice honey made for them.
This is "Lorraine Lee" which has double coral-pink blooms. The bush has such lovely glossy foliage and always looks healthy. The amazing thing about this bush it hasn't had any aphids on it at all. Though the roses both sides have there fair share of them.
I hope you all have a great weekend and if you are in the part of the world where Friday is today enjoy your Sew-In.
