What I did on my holidays...

Look, I made a scarf.
With beautiful wool (oh, that's yarn in blogspeak), and a crochet hook. It's fast and it's fun this crocheting thing.

I got another one of these.

So now there are three!

The sparkly mirror parts are all different. Must figure out where to hang them.

And now I am transferring pattern markings, the old fashioned way, by stitching tailors tacks. Guess that's showing my age. Maybe I should get some of that new-fangled chalk stuff.

Oh and about those books....I got an email. "Don't be ridiculous", he said. "There's no such thing as too many books". Ha!

I'd rather see books than walls. Just saying...
Also, you can call wool wool, if it actually comes from a sheep, but if it's cotton or alpaca or unknown fibres or acrylic, call it yarn, just to be safe. There's nothing worse than talking about wool when you mean "some crap."
Nice scarf; we'll have you on Ravelry soon!
