Last weekend I finished my Dorothy's Tail Scarf.
So I blocked it, just lightly. No pins, no wires, but just water and my hands to shape it.
And then on Wednesday I wore it as my self-stitched item for the day.
It's a great pattern. You can find it over there on Ravelry. I used a skein of Fibrewebs MCN fingering weight and I find this yarn to be the warmest and cosiest of all I have crocheted with.
Here is a week's worth of Self Stitched September. The Not-Sorbetto was worn yesterday for the first time and if I don't make myself another 10 of these by the end of summer, I should be classified as insane. It's comfy and cool. What more do you need?
September 10 - Saturday, cold. Still sick. Me-made cardigan, me-made kanzashi brooch, and me-refashioned leggings (they used to be tights but I cut the toe out of them.
September 11. Wish I'd stayed in bed but I had an errand to run. Me-made skirt.
September 12 - Sometimes you just have to make the best of Mondays. This is a favourite skirt.
September 13 - why is it still so damn cold in the mornings?
September 14 - MY NEW SCARF!! I love my new scarf!
September 15 - The best thing about doing a challenge like this is mixing up the colours a little. Today red and teal became my new favourite colour combination as a result. And also my new brown tights. Who knew that new brown tights would totally make my day? Hmm?
September 16 - Not-Sorbetto top. How fortunate that this store-bought cardi with the black bows matches the red and black bows on my top! I may be looking a little tired here - we were kept awake from 2 am by massive explosions in the next suburb, from this teensy little fire.
And we had a late start (for us, anyway) to the day due to being told not to leave the house due to possible PCB exposure. PCB? WTF? OMG! And yes, I am gazing into the distance at the massive black plume of smoke floating past.
September 17 - no explosions last night! Hooray! Me-made crocheted scarf.
In the coming days - how I challenged myself to sew two garments from the stash over the weekend, and totally frittered away one of those days crocheting.
