A gift, a project, and a review

Finished: the Water Lily scarf from Yumiko Alexander’s new crochet book Rustic Modern Crochet!


The scarf is a gift for a friend who let me ride her horse for one wonderful week in Aiken, SC.

The book itself was a beautiful collection of … well … rustic and modern crochet patterns. I do love it when things are titled appropriately. Most of the patterns were large and technically complex sweaters and wraps, with this single exception of a one-skein chunky yarn project. It made for a great introduction to the book.

I’m not sure what sort of favor would qualify for the sweater on the cover…
