My crochet scarf

Here's my latest crochet project - I've managed to finish this scarf just in time for the cold weather that is forecast for the UK this weekend.  I think that I'll be needing it very soon  - its great - really snuggly and warm! 

We've seen a few snowflakes in the Midlands this morning - fingers crossed - that's all we'll get!  The snow is lovely to look at if you don't need to get to work/school etc. but its a nightmare to try and get around in the car - me, my car and snow are not a good combination.

I used a pattern from Nicky Trench's book - Cute and Easy Crochet - to make this scarf, which I altered the size slightly.  Its really easy - mainly chain and slip stitches - great for a beginner!  This book is great - some fab ideas in it.

I can't remember where the flower pattern came from - I think it was a Crochet Today magazine - but I made these a while ago.  I think that the flowers need some pretty little buttons to sew in the centre of them to finish them off. 

I'm working on a crochet blanket, made from granny squares next - photos soon!

Thanks for looking,
