The Sarah Adventures

My dear friend  Sarah came to visit a month ago. Right before her visit, we had a text conversation that went something like this:

"Hey, do you know how to crochet?"
"Nope. Why?"
"Oh, I was just going to have you teach me this weekend."
"Well, I've been wanting to learn too, so lets figure it out when you're here."

And figure it out we did. Together, we picked out our yarn colors and watched YouTube videos to figure out the basic crochet stitches. We decided that a scarf was an easy place to start, and Sarah had the genius idea to make an infinity scarf. Since we live in separate states, I hope she doesn't mind that I did the same. Well anyway, after some hemming and hawwing, Sarah got the hang of it and took off. During my flight home for Thanksgiving, my own scarf began to take shape, although I got lazy decided to make scallops by chain stitching out for 10 stitches and then securing the end to the previous row. I am very pleased with how it turned out. It really is more of a scarf necklace, but our office is always frigid, so this is a perfect winter accessory. 

Oh, and for our moms, here is a picture of us at Lake Tahoe

Let the crochet insanity begin!

  1. Cute scarf! I don't know why I've never had the patience for knitting or crocheting, but yet I'll sit and cut out intricate shapes for hours on end (or something else that's super tedious) in the name of some crafty end-product. Weird.
