THINKING PINK

Today we had a huge snow storm here.  It started early yesterday with just a few flakes, the sky was dark and gloomy and the air was very cold and crisp.   As I ran errands I was thinking about all the things I wanted to make when I got home, to the warmth of my cozy living room and fireplace. The boys (all three of them) were there so I knew I wouldn’t have a lot of time to spend crocheting.

When I got home, I quickly searched around my stash and found lots of  bulky yarn I needed to use up.  Old Softee Chunky, that to my chagrin is no longer made in the thickness I have come to love.  I decided to make this crochet neck warmer.  With thick yarn and a large hook it will work up quickly and has a yummy, plush and super soft drape to it!  Yup the perfect choice.

This beautiful stitch is a result of single and triple crochets worked together.  IT’S THAT SIMPLE! If you love it and are a beginner (or seasoned) crocheter and want to make something for yourself too, this project is perfect.

The Cumberland Trio includes patterns for the Neck Warmer, Boot Cuffs and Cup Cozy so it’s easy to get the hang of this stitch by making a smaller project before diving into the neck warmer you will for sure want to make for yourself!

Another day I hope to fill crocheting passed me by.  So for now, I will go make dinner and hope everyone falls asleep early so I can crochet into the wee hours of the morning.
