Ruffled scarf + pretty blue apron

My craft buddy from work convinced me to make this ruffled scarf as one of my first crochet projects (I’ve found that scarves take a lot longer to complete than cacti).

This ruffly beauty ended up being quite long, but perfect for neck-wrapping in cold, snowy Michigan, where my sister lives (it’s currently 19 degrees there).

For my mom, I stitched up a new apron in her favorite color. This one is so cheery that I am contemplating making myself one.

Our new place in California has a Jo-Ann’s nearby (the source of this fabric) which is much happier than the Hancock near my old place (it was sad and dingy). And this Jo-Ann’s is big, has a good selection of home-dec fabrics, plus a big craft section! It’s the little things of living in the suburbs that make me happy.

    Hi Em – I love what you are doing with both knit and crochet: you’re truly in the Brondsema tradition now. Have your cousins seen your site? My hands are now too painful to do rugs anymore, and I am contemplating how to get rid of about 750 wound balls of 1″ fabric – all colors, plain and patterned. Maybe this summer you would like to take them off my hands???? You could actually ship all 750 balls out to your new home – but, then, of course, you would have to build new shelves! I’m so glad your dad set me onto your site. Love, Aunt Paula
