First Scarf of the Season

I mentioned yesterday that I was going to start to crochet scarves to donate to Bridge and Beyond and got one finished and another all but finished, but I'm going to tear out part of the second one.  I switched up the stripes and it ended up being wider than I wanted, so I'm going to play with it to see how much I can salvage before ripping the whole thing apart to start again.

This scarf is a simple striped pattern (that I'll write up and publish here shortly), and is a great way to use up smaller bits of yarn in your stash.  Here's what I did in grays and black:



You can get a completely different look by varying the colors, and whether you put the darker colors on the outside or inside.  I've got lots of stash to play with, so you'll be seeing more of this in various color schemes.  It's another damp day, so I'll be in the recliner finishing up at least one more scarf today.

Pretty! I'll read about the organization and maybe do the same? My crochet ability isn't what yours is, though! ;-) Good to read you, MA.

I'm almost through my first scarf of the fall as well! Looking forward to making many with stripes this year (I've practically been thinking about it all summer!)

I like it! I would really love to curl up and lose myself in crocheting this afternoon, but I have too much to finish first! ;-)
