In any event, next up was my sister-in-law Sarah and I made one for her birthday. I gave it a break over the summer and then made another one for my other sister-in-law Becca's birthday in October. Then I got the great idea to make them for the women members of our families for Christmas. I made five scarves all together. Here are three of them before being wrapped up.
I *think* I use a basic single stitch. I am not really sure, I just do whatever my mom taught me. Sometime soon I want to get a "Learn to Crochet" book so I can figure exactly what it is I am doing, and to learn more. Next up is a scarf for me (finally!) then a shorter one for Zach. I am also going to try a bandana type scarf for my dog-in-law, we'll see how that works out. I'd love to be able to try out a few blankets too and one of my goals is to make baby blankets for when my close friends and relatives start having babies.
