Scarflet
This is not the scarf I meant to make out of this yarn (I meant to make this scarf), but somehow the yarn store fooled me into buying a laceweight pattern with a sportweight yarn, and it just didn't work.

But this one is nice too. Everything Anne Hanson designs is lovely, and the yarn is a merino/cashmere/silk, so it's very pettable. Does anyone want to give this a good home?



In terms of other things people might want, I'm starting to get a large pile of leftover half-skeins of yarn, which seems to work well for making things like amigurumi octopodes so if anyone has a particular desire for a small stuffed animal of some type, but is flexible about the color, let me know.

Speaking of which, I think *someone* asked me about making another squid hat recently. If it was you, please remind me who you were!

Wow, that is gorgeous. I am always impressed by how quickly you make things. I'm still struggling with my simple infinite scarf of never-endingness. :-)

My grandmother just sent me a much simpler scarf with the similar idea of having a hole that you tuck the end through. It's a pretty cute design.

PS, in searching for pictures of echindas (for a completely unrelated thing) I found these cute crochet'd echidnas I thought you might also think were cute. :-) I didn't find a pattern, though.

I inquired about squid hats!

Eventually I will have cycles to crochet ...

Yay, I have put it in my queue now so I can remember it. :) (Right, you were supposed to tell me a color. Or tell me to pick a random color, which I can do. :) )

Picking a random color works. Or a patchwork squid with big button eyes. I will happily make ceramic buttons if you think that'd work.

I suppose that's actually an octopus, but the pointy head seems more squid-like to me.

I used the Lion Brand pattern:

You have to give them your email address to see their patterns, or you can cheat and get it out of the google cache.
