While wandering through the craft aisle at the local Wally World I came across some Red Heart yarn that was marked down to $1.50 a skein. There was a pattern on one for a Mile-A-Minute scarf and wanting to see if I could decipher the crochet pattern and seeing two colors I really liked I decided to take advantage of the deal. This is the end result:
After one episode of starting and then frogging I whipped right through it and am pleased with the results. Not necessarily a scarf for the middle of winter, but nice nonetheless.
I haven't blocked it yet, but I think it came out pretty good for my first big crochet project. Now I'm going to knit some socks.
