Crafting in Progress

Hi friends, I've been enjoying myself making some crafts this week.

This is a crochet scarf in shell pattern. It is made in beautiful Fall colours and has metallic thread running throughout which gives it a touch of elegance.

Click on this photo to enlarge and see the metallic thread as well as the true colour.

It isn't quite finished. I still have to weave in the end threads and then it will be done. When it is finished I will be making another scarf or a cowl/neck warmer, in shades of deep blue and green.

Two dishcloths in a traditional pattern. This is a small present for a young woman who just moved from a room, into a new apartment and is setting up house. 

My knitted square in a weave pattern. It has crocheted edges. You might remember this work from here. As you can see, I decided on a beige colour trim instead of the blue as I thought this could be used for a lap blanket  or a unisex baby blanket.

Once I finish these works and a few others, I will put them up for sale in my Etsy shop. Perhaps you would like a scarf or a hat for a Christmas gift or simply to wear for the Fall and Winter season.

All profits go to the Missions of Hope.  Potential buyer enquiries welcome.

What a beautiful scarf! Could you please post the pattern details as I'm thinking of making myself a shawl and the shell crochet looks so pretty. X

Gorgeous!! You've been busy! I love seeing all my Northern friends embrace fall colours! We're into the spring blossoms here. Lilacs, wisteria, orange blossoms....

How clever you are Penny. I really must do some making soon. That's a great idea to have a shop going and proceeds to your Missions. I hope you do well. xx

Beautiful scarf. I have not crocheted in years; you may have inspired me. I'm still good for washcloths, though. Always of use.
