It's been such a beautiful sunny and warm day here in Colorado that I had to take a short break from tech editing indoors, stuck in front of a computer.
I grabbed my Sexy yarn from the Buffalo Wool Company, a couple of different sizes of crochet hooks, paper and pencil, and out onto the balcony I went. The sun felt sooooo... good on my winter skin, mmhhmmm. But I made sure to keep an eye on the clock so that I wouldn't catch my first sunburn of the season either!
In my mind and with doodles, I've been playing around with some ideas for a crochet motif scarf, wrap or shawl for quite a while and now I've finally found some time to see what they would turn out to be like in the yarn.
After a few false starts and raveling back to get stitch counts right so that the motif would lay flat, I started to like what I saw. This was definitely developing into a keeper! Yay! Not all ideas work out once you try them with yarn...
Letting things stew for a few nights resulted in me adding some color to the motif. I love those Sexy mini skeins. They are perfect to add just a bit of color without having to buy a whole big skein of yarn.
Now the only thing left to figure out is some kind of an edging and then it's worrying time for the big question: Will I have enough yarn for the project?
