Time For Crochet

   While I'm waiting for my backing/binding fabric to come for the scrappy string quilt top, I decided I needed a crochet project to work on.  I don't have a lacy accent scarf and I wanted to make one with some of the cotton crochet thread I have hanging around.

   I found a free pattern for an easy headband/necklace, link here.  I doubled the foundation chains to make it a little wider and I will tea stain it when it's finished.  I'm using a size U.S. 00/2.7 mm steel crochet hook with my Aunt Lydia's Crochet Thread Classic 10.  I like the fabric that the hook and thread are making, so I'm calling this a winner.

   Here's what I've done today (about 18 inches).

   This is a closer shot of the scarf.
