This, that, and the other thing

August has been full of a variety of small projects. Here's a sampling of some of them. "Zinni" is my first attempt at crocheting a Amigurumi toy. She was alot of fun to crochet, but less fun to sew together.

I crocheted a little (about 3x4) jewelry pouch for my mom to give her a yarn sample for some doilies she wants me to make for her. The very nice yarn is Jaeger Aqua, a mercerized cotton, and the color is water.
A long time ago I had gotten some Manos del Uruguay yarn for a rug hooking project. I decided to crochet a ruffle scarf with it. I think it'll make a festive scarf for the holidays.

And I started an easy, casual shawl. I'm really liking the pattern and the color of the wool, a soft Berroco Ultra Alpaca. The fabric in the background is going to be the lining for the hooked circle handbag. Have a nice weekend - hard to believe August is almost gone!

Betsey, everything you make is just so cool! I love the variety of your projects. That Manos scarf looks luscious and I love the color of the Berrocco Alpaca shawl.

Did you get any of those yarns at the Woolcott sale?

Thanks, Bonnie! No, these yarns didn't come from the Woolcott sale. At W, I got some euroflax for another bobble bag and a nice bamboo hook.
