I guess this means I am a crocheter.

I finished my first wearable object, and I managed to wear it proudly coupled with the owl sweater today. After work, I met up with a friend who fondly mentioned how often she wears a store bought scarf I gave her when she was in my wedding. It grated it on me all night that I gave this Very Important Person a store bought scarf, but in my defense, I've only been intoxicated by yarn fumes for the past 3 years and I've been an old married lady longer than that.

At the end of the night, I gave her the scarf. I love this scarf, but I can always make another one. She was kind of shocked, as was I (did I mention how much I love that scarf?), but it felt right.

If you want to make one, too, the pattern is Boteh Scarf by Kathy Merrick. This Boteh was made with Dream in Color Smooshy in the Spring Tickle colorway. I found the yarn a little squeaky to work with, but it was nice and soft against my neck and it seemed like a hard wearing yarn.


  1. Wow - it is gorgeous! How many hours did it take you? I'm a reasonable crocheter, but I've only worked with fat yarn in the past (so much faster!).

  2. Meera, I started the scarf on Feb 1 and finished it on the 24th. How many hours? Not sure... I pick at projects in my spare time. On Ravelry, people rate it as an easy pattern that just flies off the hook.

  3. Of course, you can probably crochet in your sleep by now, so why did I even ask? :) I'm setting this out there in my ever growing list of things I want to do. Not that I don't already have way too many scarves for Texas.

  4. Well, it was snowing in Texas... That seems like perfectly legit multiple scarf weather to me.
