.....but I told you so. Summer is still shining down on us in my part of the UK and the forecast for next week looks just as good with temperatures close to 30 C. That will do nicely, thank you. Some years, I don't reach September without turning on the heating. This year, I am aiming for October.
I pressed on with the scarf that I have been crocheting with this very thin dk yarn. I used just over 100g and stopped at 5" wide because it will eventually be going off to Operation Orphan for their Keep A Child Warm campaign. The acrylic and wool mix is perfect for a strong but warm and soft scarf.
The very long colour changes look great in this type of scarf that is crocheted sideways. I used one of my favourite crochet scarf patterns. I usually use a size 4.5 or 5mm hook. But the yarn was so thin that I had to use a size 4mm hook instead. That is one reason this scarf took so long to make. The other reasons might have had something to do with making the most of our SUMMER while it lasts.
