Scarf Time!

As Elijah gets bigger, and spends more time playing by himself, I'm trying to find hobbies to keep myself occupied. Before our trip my hobby was the busy book and since we've been back I've taken up crochet. Thanks to various books, YouTube videos, and websites, I've gotten chains, single crochet, and half double crochet stitches down.

So far I made a scarf for Eric and one for myself. Eric is encouraging me to crochet a Christmas stocking for Eli. I have the pattern and yarn, but haven't yet attempted to start the stocking. I'm working up my courage to get it going. And I would like to make a scarf for Elijah as well.

Below are the links I used to learn crochet and patterns for scarves I've made.




And here are pictures of the scarf I made for Eric. It even got Eli's seal of approval!


  1. That's such an awesome scarf! I was just talking to my co-worker today about making scarves but we thought it would be too much of an undertaking. You've inspired me, though!
