A Stitcher's Wardrobe: Triangle Scarf

One little skein of Nash Island Fog (lamb's wool and angora), purchased this summer at Clementine, and a few yards of Graceland Farm Alpaca, a generous gift from my friend Elizabeth, hooked up in a flurry.  I am indeed enjoying making accessories, and this thing called crochet.

A note about this old shirt: The fabric is an inexpensive cotton sold as "quilter's cotton". It has faded, softened, crinkled, and broken-in to a state that I adore.  I encourage budding garment sewers to work with yardage from the "quilting" section for your first stab at a pattern -- you might be pleasantly surprised at the results. And if your results are not to your liking, you have at least addressed the pattern's fit at a reasonable cost. A small price for huge learning.

I am hoarding my Fog. I just fondle it and admire it.
