Crochet Lace Bookmark

The first signs of early spring begin to show here in Northern California, and I'm getting into the spring mood. 

I really like this variegated mint green thread. I've made a few projects from it before. And this is the latest one! I think this bookmark is very spring-like!

The finished size is approximately 8.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. I used size ten cotton thread and size 1.25 mm hook.

The pattern is available in my Etsy shop,

Oversized Lace Infinity Scarf

Last week I shared photos of my new oversized lace infinity scarf. Thank you so much for all the kind words and compliments. 

I've been wearing it a lot, and I've been getting compliments every single time. 

A few days ago, in a parking lot of a shopping plaza I met two women who complimented my scarf and asked whether I made it myself. We started talking and they invited me to join a local crochet group that meets once a month. How exciting! It would be wonderful to meet crocheters from my area. The next meeting is this weekend and I hope to attend it. 

I recently made another such scarf. This one is for my friend. It's going to be her birthday present. I like the idea that she and I will have the same scarf, but in different colors.

I used the same yarn (Boutique Unforgettable by Red Heart), but this yarn color is called Cappuccino. I think it will be perfect for my friend.   

The pattern for this scarf is available in my Etsy Shop and my Craftsy Shop.

Green Scallops Baby Blanket, My New Crochet Pattern

I would describe my new baby blanket in two words - cute and easy! 

The pattern is very simple. I think it's one of the easiest blankets that I've made. Yet it looks very cute. Those scallops are so neat and lovely. 

The blanket is soft and light.

I used Caron Simply Soft Light yarn. It took three skeins, 330 yards each. The hook I used is G/6 (4.25 mm). And the finished blanket came out about 38 inches long and 29 inches wide. 

The pattern is in my Etsy shop and my Craftsy Shop.
