Ha, I have actually grow kinda fond of my "crochet ole" title - so I decided to use that from now on for my finished projects.
Most peeps seem to call it their "crochet ta-dah!" and I used to say "crochet yay" but I like the ole better - it has some kind of pizazz associated with it.
But enough of the dribble, let me show you what I created within 24 hours

The pattern looks so classic and difficult but it is one of the easiest shell/lace patterns I have come across.
I had this one ball of Stylecraft Special DK in cream left and thought that might be a good choice for a nice scarf for myself.
Seeing that the last couple of scarves/wraps which I crocheted were all given away as Christmas presents. So it's about time I treat myself, right?
The pattern was taken from one of my most loved and most referred to crochet books:
I would not want to be without this book as it has some of the best instructions around - AND it gives you chart and written pattern at the same time.
