Crocheted Scarf for the Fall – Try New Adventures

Posted on: September 8, 2011

The temperatures in Austin have dropped, and I’m already bringing out my fall clothes!

Ok, not really. The temperatures have dropped, giving us low 90’s instead of 110’s. But, with the exception of two mornings this week {when I went outside and it was still in the low 60’s}, I have not brought out any cold weather clothes. However, for the last few weeks I have been working on making a crocheted scarf.

As part of my 30 before 30, I wanted to learn to crochet. While I specified making a pot holder, I decided to go all out and make a scarf after I found some cute yarn at Hobby Lobby. ย Here is the end product ::

It’s about 50″ long and 8″ wide. Here’s a better picture to show you the length::

Other than to take these pictures, I haven’t worn the scarf. Which gives me even more reason to want the weather to cool off. I’m super excited to actually wear something that I’ve made. And in public no less!

I got some more fun yarn to make the girls each a scarf for Saint Nicholas Day gifts. So far, those are proving to be even faster projects, since they are quite a bit smaller than mine.

What crafty new adventures have you been up to?ย

Love the yarn! Great job! That second picture looks a little like you have an exotic snake on your shoulders. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hahaha! That’s funny.

That is so cute! I may enlist you to make me one…a paying job of course! ๐Ÿ™‚ And now that I’m only an hour (ish) away from you, driving out there to pick it up would mean a good excuse to come visit!

If you find yarn you like, let me know and I’d love to make one {but you’re family, so no way am I gonna charge you!}. Hopefully, we’ll actually see each other now that we’re so close. Maybe during the holidays?

Absolutely! We’ll be all by our lonesome out here this year, during the holidays! I’ll shop around for some yarn…I’ve always wanted a handmade scarf but I am sooooo not crafty!

Sarah, it’s so cute! How long did it take you to make it? It takes me fooooorrrreeeeevvvveeeer to crochet things!

Thanks! I worked on it for about 2 weeks, with taking some breaks for days {like at the beach} and then working like a mad woman for several days {like when Jon was home and I could steal away more time}. I’m doing a smaller version for the girls, so maybe that will be a better indicator of how quickly I can get something crocheted.

AWESOME!!! You did such a great job! I’m with Alicia, it takes me forever to crochet something. I’ll be praying for cooler weather to head your way so you can wear it. ๐Ÿ™‚

Way to go! That’s awesome! That is something I still haven’t gotten the hang of. So glad you have mastered it!

impressive! you should try a blanket for the baby boy ๐Ÿ™‚ i made myself an afghan- took like a year! but i wished that i would have been on top of things to make my kids blankets… maybe when i’m a grandma ๐Ÿ™‚

Jonathan mentioned that the other night. Not sure yet if I’m going to try to tackle it anytime soon.

Wow! I’m impressed. Did you get a book to teach you or what? Way to go!

Keri, I originally bought a “learn to crochet” kit from Hobby Lobby. However, I didn’t find the book to be all that helpful. I just combed you tube for videos. Those proved to be a big help!

Wow Sarah great job, that is really cute! I’m so glad the days are cooling off a little!

Also, you don’t even look pregnant in these photos, I did a double take wondering when you took them.

Haha! You are too sweet Katie. Maybe it’s the black? Cause black is slimming, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

That’s awesome! I need to learn how to crochet because I’ve wanted a circle/eternity scarf for some time now. Hope the weather continues to cool down for you ;).

That is so cute! You’re inspiring me… just the other day my hubby was telling me to relax and do something “fun” for myself. “What does that mean?” I asked him. Well, I think God just answered that question for me through your post. ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way…you look amazing and totally adorable. I almost couldn’t tell you’re pregnant!

Blessings,
Rosann

Very cool! I recently got rid of all my knitting supplies, but kept things for sewing. It wasn’t the smartest idea since I do know how to knit, and I don’t know how to sew. I’m thinking about picking it up again, but I don’t have a good track record for finishing projects. Maybe I need to find some kiddos to knit for!
