Scarves #Handmade #Folksy

I couldn`t decide what to put on here today but wanted something for the fast approaching winter season. I thought about winter warmers first and typed it into the search and surprisingls there wasn`t that much, just 7 pages and most of those for small children and babies. So next I tried hats. This time, a lot more pages but they seemed mainly for babies. Now I know there are a lot of hats about because I have seen them listed on the forums. I tried the first 14 or 15 pages and then jumped to the end and worked backwards for several pages and I didn`t even see any of my hats which surprised me.
So then I decided to go for scarves and bingo!!! Lot`s of scarves and lot`s of variety of colours and designs, just what I wanted. After all we are all individuals with individual tastes. Plus of course if you like handmade you tend to be looking for something that little bit different, that you won`t see every other person on the street wearing. I think I managed to find a good variety for you to peruse today.
I was trying to work out how to crochet a full pair of mittens, I had done knitted ones, but wanted to crochet them. Sometimes I think it would be so much easier at times if I could follow a pattern, but then I look at one and it always looks so complicated I don`t bother. Having made up my own designs for so long a written pattern looks like a foreign language. Anyway after several hours of trial and error I now have two finished pairs of mittens. As always the first always takes the longest and subsequent ones are easier. I also have a tendency to refine the pattern as I go along. I did write down the basics of the knitted one, very basics, just a guideline really but don`t think I shall need to write the crochet one down. Once I have done a couple of anything it`s there in my head then. Plus if I go back to a style after a while and I can`t recall the exact way of doing it I`ve only got to look at the picture and it all comes back.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY and have FUN!!!

Today we have scarves galore
knitted, crocheted and much more.
So many different ones to tempt
and even the men are not exempt.
Blues, purples and glorious red
not for hiding in your bed.
Soft and silky, thick and warm,
once the chill hits, folk will swarm.
All wanting to get in first
when they don`t, fit to burst.
So many are One of a Kind
that each one is a real find.
White, yellow, cream and green,
aren`t they the best you`ve ever seen?
An orange octopus and a rainbow,
all meant to give you a glow.
Ruffles and frills or plain
just too much choice again.
So many colours and styles
once you look you`ll be all smiles.
Then it`s off to make the choice, be quick,
while you still have the first pick!

  1. Ooh lovely! I did enjoy the heatwave last week but now I'm looking forward to things getting a bit more autumnal and being able to wrap up warm and cosy!! I'm a sucker for woolly things.
