Three Scarves

Back to crochet again.

It seems like every time I start a scarf, I feel the urge to start another and another.

I started this one because I like the first chevron scarf...but I wanted a more narrow scarf with just one v. I think I'll stick to blues, greens, pinks, and purples for the color scheme of this one.

The first one is the original chevron of course...and the pink scarf is Ireland's alpaca scarf. It's my fifth Isar scarf. The pattern can be found here. It's so soft.

Still no progress on the patchwork. Maybe I'll find my crochet mojo after we move.

I've been getting several messages on Ravelry and emails daily about patterns found here. I just wanted to say that I read all of them and am trying to answer as many as I can. If I don't answer, please feel free to email or message me again. It worries me when I feel like I don't answer someone.

With that being said, so far I'm having a peaceful weekend...I hope you are too:)

Here lately I've not been in a crocheting mood. I've been smashing this weekend.

I thought I would share some of my smash book pages. I am using part of this book as design pages for the new house. Each room gets a page. Most of the things on the pages are found at IKEA. Some are from mid-century

The page below includes the things we are going to buy for our workspace/ playroom/ craft room in the new house. Ireland and I will be sharing this space. We plan on making a trip to IKEA in a couple of weeks.

Currently, I'm working on the pages for the sun room and master bedroom. 

The pages below are about my recent crafty projects.

I think I'll crochet a little this afternoon. I'm trying to finish Ireland's scarf made from the alpaca we bought at the alpaca farm.

Still no progress on the patchwork. I've crocheted 2 squares in the past week so I thought I would wait a few days before taking more photos...when I have more to show.

I'll probably post less over the next 2-3 weeks, since we are needing to start packing everything. I'm in the mood to move...chomping at the bit to get a date. (There was a major issue with the appraisal this time...the house was classified as an underground or passive solar house...making it impossible to find comparables)

It does not look underground to me. Passive solar maybe? There are 2 earth berm rooms, so that has been the issue. Absolutely nothing has went smooth with this house. A second appraisal had to be done, since the first one became a problem. We have been reassured that this won't be a problem now...we will see;) I'm at the point where I'll have to see it in writing to believe it. I am open to start looking for another's just so stinkin hard to find land right now. We really wanted this house for all of the land.

Now they are telling us closing may be at the end of this less blogging and more packing and getting ready.

Have a great rest of the weekend and upcoming week:)
