Busy Crochet Bee

I've just finished a crochet project for me - a skinny scarf that I'm dubbing Dark Lady in honour of Hectate.  The colour and feel of the yarn made me think of her the whole time I was working with it.  Dark blue transitioning into purple and a lighter moonlit blue shade, the slight roughness and firm structure once the pattern started building - it just spoke to me I guess.  I shall dedicate it to my Lady I think.



The second of my crochet successes is the first of many items that are being created for a Cancer Charity project that I'm working on.  muntahz  donated the yarn for this project and I think it look s pretty handsome.  There are a couple of others on the go that I'm hoping to finish and post soon.  I'll certainly post all the charity items on here so that y'all can see what I've been up to with your generous donations :)

Those colours look great together!
Some happy women will love buying that and supporting a well worth it charity.
Glad I could help and you did so much better than what I could have done!
You are a very talented crocheter!

Thank you :) They're so fun and quick to do. Are you on Ravelry.com. The patterns are on there if you fancy having a go :)

I do have a Raverly account and yet never go.
I am still in the newbie mode which means I can not tell if I am knitting oir purling when knitting ;)
Plus I learned in Europe and have discovered that according to most US knitters I do it "wrong".
It being everything it seems.
Seriously I have been told that!
If I get the effect I want how is it wrong?
I plan to start taking some classes at a store with FABULOUS yarn. ;)

Ooh the meanies. As long as you get the right stitch in the end what does it matter how you get it? There are loads of variations - just do what feels right :) Knitting in a yarn store is seriously dangerous. Although, finding a yarn you really like and working up a pattern can be a great incentive to take the plunge into something you're not sure you can do. Just do as a friend of mine does - start your project, mess it up and then take it to the yarn store, smile sweetly and say 'erm I don't think this is working, could you fix it please'. You learn loads talking to other knitters and watching them do things too :)
