After the worst day ever this week I'm ready for something fun. What's more fun than going crazy with some crochet and some crappy old yarn you've had in your stash for 5 or 6 years?
Spike Stitch Cowl. The yarn is Tahki "Twiggy Tweed". It's a blue/grey single with purple neps in it...and a lot of VM! I don't know what they were thinking when they sold this yarn but I cannot believe it was marketed commercially as it is. I've been picking pieces of dried grass and sticks out of it every few feet. This must be why it was so cheap on eBay, LOL
The label says "Made in France" and "we recommend dry cleaning", HA! Dry clean wool...a travesty if you ask me. This baby will be soaking in some Eucalan as soon as it's finished. Hopefully that will soften it up a bit. After so many years being stored away I'm sure it could use a little rejuvenation.
I tried to get a close shot of the stitches but it's difficult to see. It's single crochet and triple crochet alternating. I'm carrying the yarn double since it's quite fine. Super easy and fast but a bit hard on my hands.
After that I'm on to the Calm Cowl Crochet-along. Haven't done a crochet along before so I'm hoping it'll be fun. It's a nice looking pattern and I'm excited to get started on it. You're welcome to join in if you'd like.
Have a great weekend. Thank you for the kind words on my Wednesday post.
We'll be here, adjusting to a different life without Max.
