Crocheting Squares & Costumes

I've been quite productive this week. I've made lots of squares and even started my Cheshire Cat scarf.

I've had to rethink the afghan for my cousin because I didn't end up with as many pink squares as I'd hoped. I have 10 Country Rose and 20 Pink Camo. I considered buying a skein of Light Raspberry to fill in the gaps, but decided against it. With a yarn stash like mine, I want to use what I've got. I've added Medium Purple and Orchid to the line up and taken away the Buff and Aran. I'm still planning to use the Frosty Green.

This is the second time I've made a scarf for a library event. The first time was back in January 2010 and I made a scarf for a Winnie-the-Pooh story time. Click here to see a picture of that scarf. The idea for my Cheshire Cat scarf was inspired by Alycia over at The Curious Pug. I discovered her Cheshire Cat scarf via Pinterest and knew I had to make my own. I'm using Red Heart's One-Ball Ripple Scarf pattern. I'm using a size H hook and Red Heart Super Saver in Pink Tones and Purple Tones. I'm working 8 rows of each color and then changing. I haven't decided which pattern to use yet for my fingerless gloves, but I'll keep you posted.

Until next time, happy crocheting!

Have you ever done something like the fingerless gloves before? I can only crochet squares and rectangles so that sounds like a challenge!

Yes, I've made them a few times. The pattern I normally use is very easy...much like a rectangle that's joined together.
