I finished up this Alpaca scarf this week. I do have to say it was hard to crochet… not that the yarn itself was hard to use but it looked like hair and for whatever reason just really grossed me out. hahaha… I guess since I have been bald by choice when I see hair places or have to deal with hair it brings this disgusted reaction… really kind of odd. But it did turn out nice… and it is really soft. 😉
For sale for $45. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if interested.
I have a nephew who is 3 and loves trains so I thought I would create a train hat and scarf for him. Of course it couldn’t be just a plain hat and scarf… I like as many sensory inputs as possible. So it has jingle bells and lights. I was going to attach a whistle but couldn’t find one in time for Christmas. 😉
Front of Train Hat… includes a jingle bell inside the front
Side of train hat… includes wheels to help cover the ears
Train Scarf. 2 trains at the ends of the scarf are also pockets
Train Scarf view of the pockets. Both pockets have a light and jingle bells in the inside.
There are a few modifications I would make for the next time around. I should really make one for myself. I wouldn’t have any problems getting my keys into the lock at night and people would hear me coming… can’t beat that. 😉
