I've started another project that I am quite excited about. I started making some 'flowers', for no particular reason other than to practice a new crochet pattern. So far I've only been making the 'classic' granny squares. Then I decided to browse Etsy and see what crochet products were for sale which lead me to this kinda neat scarf idea. There were a few scarfs that had crocheted flowers sewn together to make the scarf. The flowers were a bit different to mine but I think it will still work with these. There's also this tutorial on You Tube that shows you how to make this ruffled flower which I really like and so I'm thinking I'll make a few of those too and add them to the scarf in a random fashion, just to add some dimension and texture.
This is the beginning of the scarf, at the end though I want to sew them together so they are more random. I don't want just a chain of flowers. I don't quite know how to explain what I want with words, when I make more I'll take a picture and show you what I mean. It will be mainly that blue colour with a few red/maroon ones scattered between the blues, just to make it a bit more interesting.
This is just an update photo showing the progress I've made on the granny square blanket. I've decided to make it more of a lap blanket. I've decide to make it 6x8 squares which are about 7 inches. Also I want to add a bit of a boarder like a scallop shell design, not really quite sure but that's what I'm thinking of at the moment. Anyhow I hope you have all had a refreshing and pleasant weekend and may the week to come be full of fun creative moments!
