A couple of weeks ago Daughter picked out two balls of yarn so I could make her and Son "matching" scarves. (By matching I mean the same color, but not the same pattern)
This is what she picked.
(I have this yarn in light blue and dark blue but haven't used it yet. I liked working with theirs and it gave me a better idea of what to do with the blues)
for DAYS after I bought this yarn, I heard, "I love orange, Mommy," OVER and OVER again.
I did the basket weave ends and single crochet middle. That pattern takes a LOT of yarn so she went over on her one ball allotment by about half a ball.
I love that scrunch face!
After toiling on Daughter's scarf for about 12 hours, it was great to sit down and knock out Son's double treble stitch in about 3 hours. (yes, that's how many hours the basket weave takes. It's definitely the most labor intensive (and uses the most yarn) of any pattern I do right now.
Daughter loves talking about how scarves keep her neck warm outside now that it's cold. and she loves orange and it's beautiful and lots of other sweet stuff.
