Finished Project Friday – Infinity Scarf & Mandala 

It was Mother’s Day on Sunday and Tamara at Moogly offered a pattern discount coupon for her newsletter subscribers. I immediately went over to her Ravelry store and bought a few, including the Melting Snow Infinity Scarf. It’s a lovely repeating pattern that’s so soothing to hook once you get going. I started it that sunny Autumn afternoon and finished it the next day. It’s the perfect width to wrap around twice, and looks lovely in a single loop too.

It’s the first time I’ve used Caron Cakes and I’m really happy with the yarn. This one is Cookies & Cream and I have half a ball left (any project ideas for a half cake would be welcome!). It was fun waiting for the colours to change. I have a couple of balls of Rainbow Sprinkles too and am currently torn between hooking up a fitted, cap-sleeved shrug or a bag…oh happy decisions, decisions!

Speaking of rainbows, this week I’ve also finished another of Haafner Linssen’s patterns from her beautiful book Mandalas to Crochet, currently one of my favourite crochet books. This one is called Starry, Starry Night. 

Makes me smile to look at it 🙂 I was going to get right back into finishing my block blanket today but I think I’ll be unable to resist starting another of these mandalas first – they are such a lovely crochet fix! I have put a sticky note on ‘Bewitching Basketweave’, which looks like it will be an interesting make. It has a lot of post stitches which I’m developing a real liking for through my work on Sophie’s Garden. More on that next week 🙂

    • Thanks! It’s 12 inches across. Patons Cotton Blend 8ply with a 3mm hook. Wall hanging is a nice idea! I have it folded over the side of a 12 inch rectangular black wire basket with an oatmeal canvas lining (kmart) on my crochet unit. It makes me smile 🙂 🙂
