Project 7: Done! and lessons learned

February 18, 2011

Completed flower scarf

Finished! This scarf came together really quickly. The flowers were easy and fun to make, and once I got the hang of connecting them I finished in no time. It is lovely and fun and will soon be winging its way across the country to its (surprise) recipient. I hope she likes it!

Lessons learned:
– Ah, yarn. I’m most comfortable working with yarn. I hadn’t crocheted in a while, but after relearning the lingo so I could follow a pattern it all came right back.
– There is a great satisfaction in working on a project all week and finishing it on time. Maybe I’ll carry this lesson on to future projects.
– I should have been making things more often. I’ve known how to crochet since I was a kid. Why don’t I do it more often?

I’m considering digging out the old cabbage patch doll dress that I crocheted when I was little. It’s in a box around here somewhere. I’ll post a photo when I find it.

Next week: I haven’t decided yet. I have another sewing project on the schedule but I may rearrange it and do something else. Stay tuned!
