I think I've redeemed my Nest project. It wasn't going so well. But I found this pattern on CrochetMe.com, which I love. And its actually looking good. Its basically a paper chain you used to make when you were a kid, but with yarn. And because I'm using such bulky yarn, it looks more like a braid than a chain. I love that. I'm really excited about it.
Whoops! I wrote that in the middle of July and thought I posted it. I was probably waiting until I had some images to go along with it. And now I do!
Anyhow. I finished it:
And I think it looks great. Its too short to tie, ( its a scarf-lette after all,) but you just take one end and tuck it through one of the loops and you're all set to go. Actually I think its nice its not too long-- this way it keeps you warm without getting in the way. I hope it makes someone happy. I'm going to try my hand at a cowl hood again and then send them off to Nest.
