I gave up with the scarf using the ribbon yarn I really didn't like the feeling of it against my skin it was too harsh, so it will become bags for my 2 granddaughters. In the meantime I have finally used one of my vintage patterns to crochet a doily. The colours I used are quite bright but I wanted it to have a bit of a modern twist so that it could be used when I do afternoon tea and not look old fashioned.
There are a few mistakes, that I didn't notice until I pinned it to be blocked. Overall I was a little disappointed with the end result, its not as striking as I thought it was going to be. I wanted a more vibrant effect. Maybe I should do another one, this could be become quite addictive. The one thing that seems to be going by the wayside at the moment is the reading, I tend to crochet to relax and can't manage to read and crochet I might give these audio books a try. I am reading Voyage on the Great Titanic The Diary of Margaret Anne Brady, 1912 written by Ellen Emerson White. It is slow going so I haven't formed an opinion yet
I have once again joinedGinny over at Small Things for the yarn-along.
See you soon.
