Let it snow??? Are you crazy?!?

I still haven’t been able to make it to the craft store.  Snow has been falling on and off since Thursday at a rate of about 6 inches per day.  I took a break from my amigurumi to make a hat and scarf set out of some beautiful purple merino that I had picked up for this purpose some weeks ago and some cream colored acrylic that was all I had for a contrasting color.  This was my first time making an item in joined rounds so it’s not as elegant as I would’ve liked.  I used the ribbon hat pattern from Bella’s Creations and then designed a scarf using the same scalloped edges, double crochets and color changes.

I wasn’t able to get a picture of the scarf for two reasons. First, my current setup which is great for taking picture of 3 inch tall gurumis is inadequate for larger items. Second, the power went out shortly after uploading the picture of the hat.  If I can resolve the first problem I’ll add a shot to Flickr.

I was really surprised how easy it was to make a hat and how little yarn it took.  I think this will be my new “in between gurumis” project of choice.
