I finished everything on my February To-Sew list with a few days to spare. And it felt like I needed a short change of pace so I decided to take a couple of days to do something mindless and “fluffy.” So, yesterday I read the first Harry Potter book since I’ve never read it before. I’m not sure I get all the hype but the story was good enough. And it was a short easy read. I’ve also been mapping out my priorities for March sewing and craft projects.
I’ve also set aside a bit of time (and used some time in front of the television) to crochet the kidlets some scarves — they’ve been begging for scarves of their own since last year. I used the free Bernat pattern on the Bernat Softee Chunky yarn (in Denim Ragg) that was in my stash. I used the width of the man’s scarf pattern and a length shorter than the man’s but longer than the child’s pattern. It’s a very easy pattern — as long as you can make a single crochet, a double crochet, and a chain, you can handle this one.
