It's that time of year again...

... for pulling out the crochet needles and yarn. It must be the cool crisp air and the impending freeze of winter that calls my crocheting-self out of slumber. The soft rich warmth of yarn beckons me to create something warm and snuggly out of its cozy fibers.

Lily needed a scarf so when I saw Lion Brand yarn on sale at JoAnn's, I let Lily pick out a skein. Of course she picked something pretty and pink. That is her signature color, after all. I could hardly wait to get my hands on it. So after everyone was in bed Monday night, I pulled out my crochet needles and set to work.

Lily tried it on Tuesday morning. She loves her soft cozy scarf. Handmade by her mommy. And it fits her perfectly. Small, petite, and pretty just like her.

It's beautiful just like Lily!! Your talented in so many ways! :-)

The steps and the bathroom are going much slower than planned. It'll get done though. Thanks for asking!

Have a great Thursday!

You must pop over when you get a chance and show me what stiches you use to make that. I love crocheting and need a push to get me back into it!
