My First Crocheted FO!

Thanks to some Craftster swaps, I've had the materials to crochet for some time now. However, my first project was waay too tight and scared me off for a while.

Well, I bit the bullet on Christmas and made a One Skein Scarf from Happy Hooker. It's a little long, but otherwise, I adore it!

This was a quick, quick project, even for a complete newbie like myself. I started after presents were opened, and was finished by Christmas dinner.

The yarn is Joann's 'Licorice'. It's 100% wool, without being scratchy. I used 2 skeins and a smidge of a third. I must say, I think I like this yarn better crocheted than knitted! The colors make such an interesting pattern. Now I need to knit? crochet? a matching hat and gloves.

Thanks for looking, dahlings.

well done! It's odd isn't it, how some yarns just work better either with crochet or knitting?
