Crazy 4 Challenges #C4C47

Hello Friends!! It's time for Crazy 4 Challenges again and this week, Jessie came up with an awesome challenge this week! It's an inspiration challenge. . .stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and check out the inspiration photo and the lovely cards the design team created.



I love inspiration challenges because it's fun to see different ways that others interpret the photo. I focused on the circle and stripe patterns of the photo. . .I didn't stick to the colors.


Do you see the beads? Well, believe it or not but I've had the trimming for at least 4 years now. I discovered it looking through my craft stuff. Yeah, I'm still organizing my room. I think it'll be a while before I can get my room back together.


I wanted to share a 2 of the scarves I recently made. One of the new hobbies I'm growing to love is crocheting. I started learning to crochet about a month ago and I've progressed somewhat. I've learned to crochet several types of stitches and patterns. I have a lot to learn. . .especially on the best types of yarn for different projects. Right now I'm focusing only on scarves and beanies mainly because I want to learn the various stitches and patterns. Crocheting scarves I think is the best way to practice.



I created this scarf using the "Solomon's Knot". The yarn is the Vanna White Yarn. I don't have the details of the yarn with me at this time so I can't give you the info.



Here is a close up of the scarf. The scarf has a loose weave and is very stretchy.

With this scarf, I used Bernat Silk Yarn. The stitch is a shell pattern. The weave is very tight so the scarf is rather stiff and a bit heavy but for winter, it'll definitely keep you warm.


As you can see, the pattern has a shell pattern. I like the pattern. I have to remember to keep the label so I can provide the info of the yarn. I made a few more scarves using different stitch and patterns. I'll share them next time.

Don't forget to stop by Crazy 4 Challenges and play along with us!!

Hope you all have a beautiful Saturday.
