Granny Scarf

I was looking for an easy project to work on while watching the World Series, and happened upon this scarf pattern from MyDailyFiber.  The first one I made using some leftover acrylic from my stash and an H hook.  Because it worked up so quickly, I started another and got a bit more serious with the yarn selection, this time using Sublime wool dk with a size 7 (4.5) hook.  Check out her other examples too.  The Noro scarf is really pretty.  I bet you could even use a couple of already- made orphan blocks.  I know I have a few lying around.
I'm also quilting my family signature quilt, and it's coming out just like I hoped it would.  I'm looking forward to everyone signing it at Thanksgiving.
We went to Phillips Farms again, for lunch this time, and brought home an extra quart of their Tortilla soup. We love coming here for breakfast or lunch, wine tasting (home to Michael David winery.  Try their 7 Deadly Zins. Yum!) and grabbing a handful of fresh cut flowers or an apple rhubarb pie still warm from the oven.  Don't you just love the shape of those Cinderella pumpkins?   I enjoyed growing some in my garden a few years ago, because I couldn't find any.  Now you can buy them at the grocery store.  My daughter calls them "back-fat" pumpkins.  Takes the cute right out of them.

My butt will be parked on the couch watching the baseball game tonight, while I finish up that scarf. Have a great week!


  1. I DO like the scarf ....scarves Lynne ...now that is a quality stash buster!!! Giving me ideas!!!! Do people really sign on that lovely quilt??? I mean sign as in handwriting!!!

  5. I've been watching the Word Series too, but I haven't crocheted a thing while watching. Guess I needed a rest for a few days. Love the granny scarves! And I just love all the pumpkin pictures. This is such a great time of year! Scarves, pumpkins, cooler weather, fire places, pretty leaves, and on and on.

  6. Lovely, happy pics and I do love the granny scarf too. Looking forward to seeing your quilt too once it's all finished - what a lovely idea.
