Yes that’s right – my happy hooker project for the ESK Yarnathon badge is finished – “happy hooker” meaning crochet project (shame on you for what you were thinking!) 🙂
I love this Salty Tales colorway.
I made the braided sections a bit longer and also lengthened the tabs that join them so the braids hang a bit longer than the original pattern design. I want it more as a fashion accessory than an actual cowl that keeps you neck warm so longer was better for that – plus I had plenty of yarn.
Found a button in the button bin that would work and its finished – which is good because crocheting is very hard on my wrists.
I was also doing a bit of planning for my other Yarnathon projects today too. One of the badges is for a blanket – which I really don’t want to make one for me but I found a cute baby blanket (which I can use as a gift) called Wild Kingdom. Checkerboard center and cute reverse stockinette zoo animals around the edges. I’ll be making it in Cascade 220 superwash in Daffodil – good for boy or girl blanket.
Now to go finish sewing down a quilt binding so I can call that project done.
