Crocheted Scarf

One of the nice things about living here is that there is a Hobby Lobby about 20 minutes away! I can go there any time I want! In Asheville we had no Hobby Lobby, and the closest one was an hour away. Since they weren't open Sundays, we don't shop on Saturdays, and I worked full-time, I rarely got to go.

I found some purple multi-color yarn called Aurora Borealis there to make Mia a headband-ear warmer, and then decided to get a red version to make myself one, and also a scarf. If I had to knit a scarf, it would probably not be done until next season, so I found this pattern on Pinterest that is crochet, but looks like a knitting rib stitch. And it's easy enough that I can do it! I'm about half done with the scarf already. I do wish I had used a little bigger hook, but that's okay. Next time I will.
