Crochet Group Meeting

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

At my crochet group today we had show and tell as soon as everyone arrived. One of the members showed us a lot of scarves that she is working on and she has seven projects that she is working on at the same time. There were four more members each working on knitted scarves.

I am working still on a crocheted baby sweater that needs the sleeves crocheted on and the rest needs to be sewn up and the buttons put on. I finished crocheting 2 Infinity scarves and the other project is a rectangle granny scarf.


Granny Rectangles

The rectangles will then all be assembled so that when they are all done it will look like a scarf.  I just want to say a special thank you to Ali Campbell from @Crochet Ali on Twitter for the idea.  I got the idea from one of her classes she was teaching and also from Fave Crafts because last week they had a pattern shown to make a rectangle pillow made by Henriette Pieket.  Well I think that these rectangles are really cute and they can be made into so many different things such as pillows, scarves and even a blanket.  Thank you Ali for inspiring me to make something different.

Knitting Swatch

The nice part about going to crochet group today was one of the members there taught myself and another member how to make this type of knitting stitch.  I will be using this to make other scarves in the future.

I am on Twitter, Ravelry and Pinterest.  My username is @brklynhousewife.  Please don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin too!  All of my crochet/knit creations and recipes are on my Pinterest Boards, so please have a look there also.  

Thanks everyone and enjoy.
