Oh so Lucky!!

I am 'Oh So Lucky' in my friends.. Just look what my friend Jenny shared with me.. Some lovely cotton yarn and some pretty green velour yarn plus a ball of lemon acrylic yarn.

Made a scarf out of one ball of velour and donated it for the monthly raffle at the Devonport Orchid Society meeting which we attended last Sunday afternoon.. Had a great time.. Soup and sandwich lunch and lot's of chat with some nice people..
Also made a yellow scarf for next months raffle..
 The yellow scarf was crocheted using the Coiled Iris stitch and the green is crocheted using the 'Y' stitch. both quite easy to make..
Now I just have to wind the skein of bone cotton yarn into manageable balls so I can make some nice dishcloths for future raffles. Not sure what else I can use it for.. Any suggestions?? Too nice to waste..

A Pretty Scarf!

Just finished this scarf in 8 ply acrylic yarn in a beautiful lilac colour.. Unfortunately it looks blue on the photo. I used a stitch from my Mon Tricot book called  'Coiled Iris'. A pretty pattern and very easy to crochet. Also made some more washers and dishcloths.

Strange how the colour has turned out in this photo as it is almost the same shade as the orchid flower.

More Washers.

This is a small washer made using the 'Links' stitch.

4 more dishcloths. The top is in the' Links' pattern also from the Mon Tricot book.
