YES I CAN!

Crochet that is, and cross stitch apparently.  As I mentioned before, on my shopping spree at Michaels, I had picked up a book on how to crochet as well as a beginners cross stitch kit.

This is my Bernat Temperature Scarf knit/crochet along.  The pattern is created by assigning a colour to a range of temperatures (here in Ottawa that goes from bloody freezing, to hot, back to bloody freezing), then each day you take the average daily temperature and knit or crochet 1-2 rows of the appropriate colour.   So I had originally done 2 rows, but quickly realized my scarf would be about 12 feet long, so I started over with just one row per day.  What you are looking at above is January.  The grey stripe is the border, this appears between each month.  This is the colour scheme I am using,

We are in June now and so far the scarf will be mostly blue.

I was quite pleased to discover that I can actually crochet, I have also made a couple of cotton wash cloths as well and have plans for a baby blanket, (because they are smaller and therefore easier).

So I also finished my first cross stitch and I have to say I really enjoyed it, it came out well and was an enjoyable past time, so I have definite plans to do more!

Cute eh?

So that is what I have been up to lately.  My friend Meagan popped by today for cookies, gossip and beading.  I did chain maille for the first time in ages!
