In progress: Short'n'Sweet, Thuja
Soooo I bought the Happy Hooker book. It's my only crochet reference/pattern book, although I have about 10 for knitting! Can you tell where my loyalties lie?
Anyway, I like pretty much all the tops in it! So I started on "Short'n'Sweet." Here is what I have so far:
I think it's coming out quite nicely. The yarn is Aunt Lydia's Denim, but I'm thinking I might scrap it and start over in Shine the next time I place a Knitpicks order.
And because I'm addicted to socks, I started Thujas Tuesday night, and last night I finished one! They go FAST.
They're in Wool-Ease, and they're going to be a Christmas present for a friend. I had started a reversible scarf and hat for her (in the very same Wool-Ease), but the scarf came out horribly. I apparently can't do Fair Isle quite yet. So I think she's getting nice yellow socks instead!
Actually, now I'm looking at the scarf again, and maybe it's not so bad. A wash and block might help...So maybe she'll get a scarf and socks.
