bulky scarf

Is this yarn not beautiful? I love the deep richness of the color. The photo doesn't do it justice.

It is the Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky Weight Memphis Blues. I had three skeins of it and was hoping to get two scarves out of it, which I did though the second one is much smaller.

Finished size of the first scarf is 6 1/2 x 62. The second is 4 1/2" x 47.

The yarn is soft and cushy, a pleasure to work with.

Then I picked up another bulky yarn. It is Loops & Threads Charisma. The color is #15 Ashes. This was also a nice yarn, though perhaps not quite as soft as the first. Still nice to work with and I'd buy it again.

I worked one scarf which ended up 7" x 60" and then did a smaller one 4" x 47". It must have been slightly thicker than the Deborah Norville as I used the same hook for both - an M Corian hook. Perhaps a father and son set?

It is straight dc with no edging to get the most out of the yarn.

On a completely different topic, some of you may remember my lone slipper/sock made a couple years ago using a pattern online. That is worsted weight yarn.

Well, I never did make its mate, but just this morning I saw this leaflet which looks promising. It is I Can't Believe I'm Crocheting Socks (Leisure Arts #5263). If I actually do it, the title will be quite appropriate for me.

Happy crocheting!


  1. lol, perhaps we can put your loan sock with my loan mitten. lol

    Nice blue's, I know you're a blue fan. I really love the gray, black combo you've got going though in the scarves. Very nice

  2. I love the texture in these scarfs. The colors are nice but the texture looks so soft and warm.
