Well, you didn’t really think that I had completely abandoned my crochet for arm knitting while I was away, did you? I crocheted a Boteh scarf. This is possibly the fourth time that I have crocheted a scarf from this pattern. I love it. It always gives a great result. The yarn is Frog Tree Pediboo (a blend of merino and bamboo) that I bought from Prudence Mapstone at the last Quilt Convention. It took one and a half skeins. It is SO soft and squishy.
The colour on your monitor probably isn’t an accurate representation of the intensity of yellow-green that is the colour of this yarn. I love it! Lime, but not acidic. Different to lime. Definitely green, but not blue-green. And of course, I wasn’t going to let the remaining half a skein go to waste. I made coordinating Challenge Mitts.
Okay, flat photos of the mitts really don’t show them off to their fullest potential, but they do show the ease of construction. Super simple, and used up the rest of the yarn!
I’m off to the Craft and Quilt Fair tomorrow, and am already wondering what Prudence Mapstone will be selling this time…
