September: a finished project and a new one

Hello, crafters!
I’m glad to tell you that our “TC Pfeilraupe” has had more than 900 downloads so far – I can’t even describe how happy I am about it. Remember to tell me what you think about it, in case you decide to try it yourself: your opinions matter to me!
Since I can’t keep my hooks still I’ve finished another project, this time by an incredibly talented designer you may have heard of, Sheryl Thies. I recently bought both her books about Tunisian crochet (“Get Hooked on Tunisian Crochet” and “Tunisian Crochet Encore”) and I must say I absolutely love them. Her way of explaining things is just so good, and her projects are beautiful yet practical items one can actually wear in everyday life. One of these items, from “TC Encore”, is the “Ruffled Interlude” scarf, and this one is the project I’ve just finished. I made it 2 m long and about 2 cm wide, and I used about 200 g of cotton and linen yarn named “Linette” by Miss Tricot Filati with a 10 mm hook. What can I say? This was my first try with TC short rows, and I had so much fun I really want to make another scarf like this – just gotta find someone crochet-worthy, lol!

Talking about new projects, beside some other crocheting going on, yesterday I’ve opened a FB page dedicated to my crochet ramblings and designs. If you have a FB account and want to take a look around, you’re welcome: https://www.facebook.com/OldenPatterns/. The page is new and a bit bare, but I’ll hopefully make it grow, so I really hope you’ll join me in this new adventure!
