SSS’11 Day 3 & 4: Crocheted Scarf and a Me-Made Necklace

More gorgeous Spring weather this weekend! I found it somewhat difficult to adjust on Saturday and ended up wearing to many clothes, so my Me-Made scarf spent most of the day in my bag. Look how lovely the day was:

Canberra is most beautiful when the seasons are changing and these trees are everywhere. If you look hard you can see my scarf! But here’s a closer shot:

I crocheted this from a simple pattern when I was first learning from some lovely natural coloured alpaca wool I picked at a market one weekend. My hat was also a bit of a DIY, if you can say that – I tied a piece of lace around the top and added the clip… 🙂

In the afternoon, Sweetheart wanted to go for a drive in the country again. On route, I wanted to take a few shots of my scarf in an arty way, so we pulled over and arranged it on a barbed wire fence!

I only got two shots before a highway patrol car drove past us very slowly… But I think they were more amused than anything 🙂

On Sunday, I got to start a new beading project (more creative compulsion) before Sweetheart wanted to go on a Father’s Day drive so our cat would buy him a present. I don’t object to this, because it means Felix buys me a present on Mother’s Day. He’s a very considerate cat.

Again I decided to throw on something simple and this time combined one of my Me-Made necklaces with a few other store-bought ones 🙂 I love this colour combination. Can you tell which one I made?

Stay creative!
