Yarn Bombing

Gonna be forced to learn to crochet.  Planning to make some of these to bomb the jcrv orchard next winter! My knitting peeps (Knit Wits) will be making some, too.

Basic Garter Stitch Scarf

pinned with one of my painted kerchief clips

A Fiber Trends pattern:  I used 100% bamboo yarn and a size 6 needle.  So easy and so soft.

Jerri found this rice bowl at a Bandera resale shop for 50 cents.  Perfect yarn bowl!

Scarf/Kerchief holders

I'm finding Kerchief holders at resale shops for 50 cents - $1.  Some are silver, gold, and brass colored.  Not too into brass, so I got a silver paint pen.  It gives the holder a pewter look.  And the edges can be left with the gold color for a 2-toned look

Stitch markers

I found this idea on the internet.  Just wind the hook of an earring loosely around a couple of different needles for sizing.  Now you have it!  Stitch markers!  Pretty ones.  And good gift ideas.

Eyelet Lace Scarf

This little kerchief pattern can be purchased from Fiber Trends.  I used Bamboo yarn for my first one.  Gotta love the feel of bamboo!

It was a very well explained pattern, easy to follow.  I did find that I needed to be able to focus and count on every row!  But worth it.  Doesn't take long at all.  Will def try this one again.

I tried bigger needles on this second one -- size 9 -- still used 100% bamboo yarn

3-17-14:  Wore this one today for St. Patrick's Day along with Wanda's kerchief clip -- in honor of her birthday.

Laurie Tullos is rockin this one out of the greenish bamboo yarn

Emily Campbell looks great in the blue one with her blue eyes
