FO - Retirement scarf

I'm taking this scarf and my Mum's shawl to the post office today so thought I'd better get a few pictures before they leave! I'll post the shawl photos on Friday because my Mum reads my blog so I don't want to ruin the surprise.


The scarf is made from fingering weight yarn. I just made a crochet chain of about the right length and then worked rows of treble crochet until I'd used up all the red yarn. Then I added another 5 rows of the purple yarn to make it that little bit wider


It's quite long!



I like the wavy edge formed by the crochet. I tried to preserve the effect when I blocked it


I tried to get some photos of Mr Soaring Sheep modelling it


It was rather cold outside though and he had other things he wanted to get on with so the indulgent smile was replaced by this lol


Hehe :-)

It was a nice fast project but it's turned out really nicely. I hope my Dad likes it as much as I do.

I'm linking in with Nicole's Keep Calm Craft On post today so hop over there if you fancy having a look at what other people are up to :-)
