I finished a pair of socks last week, and today I finished the crocheted scarf I’ve been working on.
Somehow I have yet to take a picture of both socks together. One I finished at Anime Boston the other I finished last Friday. Today I finished the Strawberry Lace Scarf. It still needs to be blocked at first, but it’s done! I started it back in March, can you believe it? I totally don’t crochet fast enough (or at least didn’t focus on this enough).
I like the length of it. I did 25 repeats instead of the 19 said in the pattern, but I used a different yarn, that even though it’s the same weight the pattern calls for, has a lot more spring in it than the yarn it said to use. I’m still happy how it turned out though.
In other knitting news, I finished the first clue for the Summer Mystery Shawl (warning: spoiler photograph following). The next one comes out tomorrow.
Tomorrow is the Ravelry Revelry at Squam. It’s supposed to be pouring rain. My mom and I haven’t decided if we’re going yet or not. There’s going to be some bloggers I follow there at the marketplace that evening and I really want to go so I can do a bit of fangirling, but I promise to be good and control myself if I do actually go. Though if we do go, I am going to bring a book to get signed by one of them.
Hope everyone has a good weekend! And if I do go to Squam, that’s going to be my Monday post!
