But she wanted to learn so I told her to go sign up at Ravelry and choose a scarf pattern and I'd teach how to make it so that she could learn which stitch is which, what the abbreviations mean, and how to follow along when it's all written down. So we met up at Starbucks a week later and sat down to learn. She's a bright girl and within minutes had it figured out with a bit of explanation from me.
That was a Monday, our day off. On Tuesday, she wore the new scarf to work. Did I mention she's also crazy fast?
Anyway, what with her newly unleashed crocheting skilz, we decided to make scarves for each other. I have a ton of stash yarn that I need to burn thru so I picked out a beautiful Noro Kochoran, color # 14, and here's the lovely scarf she made me. I tend to make lacy scarves, so the fact that this one is thick and poofy makes me love it all the more. The yarn is a bit sheddy, but I'm hoping that will wear off, and anyway that's why there's lint brushes, right?
As you can see, I have another skein of yarn and plan to make fingerless mitts to match.
And I need to get good pics of the scarf I made her.
