Crochet Lace Bookmark

The first signs of early spring begin to show here in Northern California, and I'm getting into the spring mood. 

I really like this variegated mint green thread. I've made a few projects from it before. And this is the latest one! I think this bookmark is very spring-like!

The finished size is approximately 8.5 inches long and 2.5 inches wide. I used size ten cotton thread and size 1.25 mm hook.

The pattern is available in my Etsy shop,

Oversized Lace Infinity Scarf

Last week I shared photos of my new oversized lace infinity scarf. Thank you so much for all the kind words and compliments. 

I've been wearing it a lot, and I've been getting compliments every single time. 

A few days ago, in a parking lot of a shopping plaza I met two women who complimented my scarf and asked whether I made it myself. We started talking and they invited me to join a local crochet group that meets once a month. How exciting! It would be wonderful to meet crocheters from my area. The next meeting is this weekend and I hope to attend it. 

I recently made another such scarf. This one is for my friend. It's going to be her birthday present. I like the idea that she and I will have the same scarf, but in different colors.

I used the same yarn (Boutique Unforgettable by Red Heart), but this yarn color is called Cappuccino. I think it will be perfect for my friend.   

The pattern for this scarf is available in my Etsy Shop and my Craftsy Shop.
