The other night, whilst shopping for ingredients for Christmas cakes (plural I’ve made four and have at least one more to go) I discovered a bargain.
Some fancy yarn (sashay? Not redheart tho) was sat innocently in a reduced basket. Whilst not certain of the colour I knew that this sort of yarn was normally quite expensive. It was always something that I had wanted to learn to use. So I grabbed a couple of balls and headed to the tills, pleased with my find.
I looked at a couple of tutorials and learned that this yarn can be used in a number of ways. But what really helped me the most was a crochet crowd video.
Quickly, I made a scarf and I’m now onto my second having tweaked the instructions to hopefully make a thicker scarf with more ruffles. I love learning new things; especially when those new skills result in possible Christmas presents. 🙂
