There's nothing quite like the satisfaction that comes with finishing a project, and I'm feeling it right now!
I just finished my first crochet project in a while. It was also my first project where I followed a pattern. Whoo!
I made the Van Ness Scarf that I found on Ravelry. If you'd never been on Ravelry before, I'd suggest checking it out. It's an online knit and crochet community. There's a ton of (free) patterns available too!
It's really a chocolate brown color. Not quite as dark as it looks here.
Additionally, I'd forgotten that I had used some of this yarn for another project, so I ran out! I got rid of 5 rows, and then didn't quite have enough to finish by about 9 stitches. Oh well, no one will really notice (unless I say something) and it's only for me!
Additionally, this weekend I was given a big bag of yarn from my boyfriend's friend because she decided she didn't want it anymore! Score! I love that people around me know I'm crafty and think of me when they're getting rid of stuff! :) I spent a lot of the afternoon on Ravelry trying to decide what to make with it!
