Work In Progress Wednesday: Seafood Festival Preview!

1 Feb

Hey Everyone! Finally a work in progress post right!? After taking a vacation and getting sick with a virus that lasted a week, it’s been a while since I’ve been able to actually get something accomplished! Thankfully I’m feeling better and I can get back on track and doing the things I love most!

Today I’m showing you something I’ve been so excited about! Now that the holiday rush is over I’ll be planning my entire year for the biggest craft show I’ve ever signed up for! Four straight days of crazy excitement in my home town – The Seafood Festival!! I’m kicking the new year off with a bang. Since I only have about one more month of cold weather (since this year has been weirdly warm) I’m crocheting my life away this month in hopes that I have enough for the fair. For those of you who don’t know, my home town school colors are maroon and gold so I found this yarn that goes from red to maroon and thought it would be perfect!

So here’s to my first craft show stash scarf!

I absolutely love how the colors just randomly change!

This is an upclose of the picture so you can show dramatic the color changes are – the lighting makes it look a little orange but it’s more of a red maroon like the first picture!

Emma sporting the scarf – when it’s wrapped twice it’s supposed to be like a cowl neck.

I am a half a skein away from being done with this so it will be a tad fuller and cozy! This isn’t the typical yarn I buy but it’s so soft I couldn’t resist! I’ve also been in a search for some gold yarn but that one is a little harder to find in the right softness.

Now if I could crank out about 20 of these in the next few weeks – that would be AWESOME! My goals are outrageous – I know!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J

    Four days of craft fair! How exciting! The yarn looks really pretty and I’m sure that the color will be a hit with the local crowd.

      Yeap!! I’ll be working my butt off until October coming up with enough product for four days – I have no idea how much I’m going to need but I’d rather have extra! Thanks 😀
