Crochet scarf - VOILA!

Once upon a time (many many times...) I visited dear Vanessa over at Coco Rose Diaries and amongst all her treasures I spotted this scarf. I knew in an instant that I just had to make one for myself. Vanessa's blog is a dream place. A fantasy world of pastels, roses, vintage, colorful crochet creations and adorable must have pottery and dreamy stuff for display and kitchen. Just look at her banner, it says it all... Her posts are sincere and honest and her photography fabulous. I wish I could snap pictures like her...

The pattern for this scarf was found at Mam'Zelle Flo and I got started. Tried out a number of different color schemes but didn't really find any satisfaction until I put together the classic blue, red, white, pink, green theme a la Cath Kidston style.

The rows of crochet stitches flew by in front of the TV at night and before I knew it I had a good yard and a half (almost) of scarf lying in front of me. And a gazillion ends to fasten off.

I decided to edge it with a row of single crochet. But to be honest it was just as gorgeous without it. When I get tired of it I might just rip the edge off and VOILA, it turns into a new scarf again.

And hello everyone! Here she is, the founder of My Rose Valley, Annette herself, wrapped up in her pretty scarf. :D... Not very photo genic but this is me.

I've been wearing it non stop since it got finished even though the weather is still warm. It is quite warm as I used wool yarn for it. It will be perfect when weather cools down and autumn approaches.

Next time I'll tell you about my Boat Quilt. It is finished despite from the personal label. The binding was a bit of a hassel as this little fellow Frankie just wouldn't stay out of the way... I ended up finishing the binding with him on top of the quilt next to the machine...

Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite. See you soon with another VOILA post.

  14. UTTERLY GORGEOUS! Wonderful colour combination and you look GORGEOUS in it! Wish I looked as good in a photo! It's such a lovely design. I haven't had a chance yet to give mine good wear as it's really hot here at the moment, but I think I will make some more as there are dozens of lovely colour combinations that could make these 'wow' scarves!

    Have a super day and happy scarf wearing!
