I have started a new(old) activity. I started crocheting and knitting again. I use to crochet so much when I was younger, my fingers would get callous. Blankets, hats, socks, what ever I could make with yarn. Being the thrifty person, that I am I headed to the thrift shop to purchase my needed materials, namely hooks and needles. I hit the jackpot. I was able to get 5 pairs of knitting needles for 75 cents and 8 hooks for $1.00. Now the yarn. One of my favorite haunts is Hancock fabrics. They mark items down to 25 cents or lower. I picked up yarn as low as $1.68. I was in heaven.
Because my skills was a little rusty I decided to try my hand some of my own scarfs. I even found some old scarfs at the thrift shop and decided to add-on or embellish the existing piece. Take a look
This was an old scarf I took a loose and reshaped. I added the button as a closure. The picture quality is a little hazy. Sorry, I was in a hurry.
This scarf was very long so I made it into an infinity scarf. I removed the tassels on the end and inserted them throughout the scarf. I think it turned out very well. I sent this to my daughter. She loved it.
This one I found at a church sale. I added different colored thread throughout the scarf for added texture. I turned this into an infinity scarf as well.
My last scarf. This is actually two scarfs crochet together. I added button just because it was Wednesday. No particular reason. The actual colors are dark brown and wine. By the time I finished this piece, it was down to the floor.
I plan to continue my new(old) obsession with yarn, crocheting and knitting. Wish me luck
