I should have waited, I kept telling my self to wait and just finish the Afghan I was working on. After all, I do need to finish it by next week so I can start my Crochet Master adventure. I was good for a while after my first kit from Annie’s Hook & Needle club arrived, but I never should have opened it, alas I was so excited!!! I do not really want to admit this but the truth be known I did not make it to the second day.

Out came the yarn and the next thing I knew I was crocheting the Ruffled Scarf. I hope I am not the only one that gets into that state of excitement when I get a crochet hook in my hands and am staring down at that new pattern!!! So at least I won’t feel so guilty. Please write and help me ease my conscience. In short, I took a break from my Afghan that I have been so diligently working on and I am now making one of the scarves. However, I promised myself I would not make the second one until my Afghan was completed.

When I picked up the pattern to glance over (as I always like to read over a pattern before I work one) I noticed it was an easy pattern to read. Very clear and well written. I knew instantly this would be a relaxing project.

Only disappointment was that the yarn said “Annie’s Hook & Needle Club”. No yarn brand or name. I will not be able to duplicate this project without a little research, for all that was said in the pattern was to use soft white fine Yarn (2).

The rest of the kit was everything they promised. Enough yarn and patterns to complete two project. If you have a variety of hooks on hand and needles to sew in those pesky ends, you will be more than ready to start the day the new kit arrives.

The scarf was made of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch), slip stitch(Slip Stitch), single crochet (Single Crochet) and double crochet (Double Crochet). This is actually a great pattern for a beginning crocheter; or someone like me who just wants a break from more difficult projects. I enjoyed doing this pattern so much I made two. One for me and one for my daughter in law; each scarf was completed in under five hours each. I am now anxiously awaiting to send it to her.

Until next time; keep those hooks flying.
