…Blue Bell Hill Scarf
Pattern by: Jocelyn J. Tunney
A lot of friends are traveling out of the country, and a few of them are staying there for good. And, they definitely kept my hands busy crocheting (and lately knitting) that the motivation to update this blog (and my other random blogs) has gone nil. Aside from crochet, coffee drowning, and a bit of running, I think “writing” is another thing that is a part of my life. It’s not really “writing,” but I do talk a lot (mostly in my head); they said this habit is an only-child thing (I’m an only child.). And, I tend to write a lot when I have a hard trying to make sense of things; I’m confused; or simply, I’m just that.
So on to this post… A friend is leaving for Europe for good. And every time a friend migrate for good, I always cannot make sense of my feelings. There’s happiness, and there’s melancholy. And, there’s that “is there something we could have done to make people stay instead? But then why would you want them to stay?”
Too many things in my head about this, and thus this post. I’m torn between should I be happy that I’ll be making a lot of crochet/knitting stuff because there are a lot of friends leaving or should I be melancholic about it? =)
But first let me #bloggerpose. And, I’m thankful that friends are just happy to accept my “labor of love.”
This is my very first knitting project that has a bit of pattern; I’m referring to the “chevron-ish” pattern of this scarf. Knitting the knockers in the past weeks made me more confident with my knitting skills. And, thankfully, the Blue Bell Hill pattern scarf is a perfect beginner scarf knitting pattern. The o-wool.com has a lot of beautiful free patterns that are perfect for beginners. So if you have been knitting for awhile, and wanted to get adventurous, check the patterns from o-wool.com.
Notes on my version of this project:
Knitting needle: 7mm
Yarn: Value Ball from Spotlight (I wish I had a fancier yarn but they’re the only available to me.)
Dimension of finished project: 12″x75″ up to 10 repeats of the pattern.
