Petit Sampler

Welcome to all of my new followers!

Last night I finished part 2 of Petit Sampler that I'm stitching with the Sticklounge group.  I know the chart is available from the original designer's blog, but I have to remember who that is before I can share it.  This is stitched on a custom color from HDF on 40 ct HDF Mermaid Blue linen.  I'm really liking the bright colors on the dark fabric!

Friday, I stopped by Michaels on my way home.  I've been debating the idea of making the boys new scarves to keep them warm this winter.  This is the color, I picked out for them.  It's a very soft yarn, called Simply Soft, I think.  I've pulled everything out twice since this is my first attempt with tunisian crochet.  I started out with single crochet which made this just curl terribly.  So I started again with double crochet and this is the result!  So, now I have two scarves to work on in this color and another one for me.  I bought an alpaca yarn for mine.  It was a more expensive than this but I wanted to try something different too.

Last night after I finished part 2 of Petit Sampler, I pulled out it's much bigger cousin.  I really like this one...just wish I had more patience for all the repeats in the border.  Once I get into the inside and away from the border, it should stitch up faster.

I really like the pinks/purples/yellows against the dark fabric! Good luck with your scarves.
