The Long and Short of It
Crochet Short Rows Scarf
Over the holidays I had a custom order for a warm scarf- something beautiful but not too frilly. I used it as an excuse to try out a gorgeous yarn - Universal Shades in "Campfire".
In the mood for something new, I decided to try some "short rows". Based on a free pattern by a very talented crochet designer, Vashti Braha, this technique is used more often in knitting than crochet.
I am delighted with how it worked with the yarn's color changes. I'm thinking of making a few more to put in my etsy shop.
Any suggestions on colors?
In With The Old?
Mid-Century Solution to a Modern Problem
I saw it out of the corner of my eye...honey blonde, mid-century styling...the size looked right. Could this be what I was looking for? Would this be the upgrade I needed for my etsy inventory storage?
Once the dresser was in its new home the dominos began to fall. As often happens to us, what started with a great deal at Goodwill ended with multiple trips to Ikea, leaving us exhausted and starving.
We finally took the plunge and converted the guest bedroom into a full-fledged home office. I'm no longer wedged into a corner behind a closet door. I have a desk and a layout table to hold the architectural plans I use for my "day job" at Wave Engineering. It will work great as a shipping station as well. I'm thrilled!
I've already started filling the dresser up with new goodies which I'll share with you here.
