Spring Scarf is Completed!

It feels so good!
This is the first project I've completed within the last seven months.  

Life has been so busy since the move that...let's just say...crocheting and any other hobby for that matter had been put on the shelf.  The life and role of a Pastor's wife is anything but dull.  Always something to do, places to go, people to visit, fellowships to plan, bulletin boards to change out....etc, etc, etc. I'm also homeschooling our youngest daughter so mornings are dedicated to school work. Our son went back to public school this year so I spend a lot of time driving him back and forth, not to mention attending all of the public school events he's enrolled in, football games...choir concerts. And then there's the every day happenings of life.

 Needless to say, my days are FULL!

It was a little overwhelming at first but I think I've adjusted enough and am able to manage the work load better. I now try to squeeze in a little bit of "me" time. 

I found this cowl/scarf pattern on the internet.  I liked it immediately because of how airy and light it looked.  I don't like big bulky things.  

 I found this scarf to be very enjoyable to work on.  The pattern was easy to follow and it worked up rather quickly.  It only took me two evenings from start to finish. I used less than one skein of yarn.  It's already been blocked and I wore it out tonight on a date with hubby. I love it!  I'm considering making another one in a different color. Although I already have my eye on some other projects I'm anxious to get started on so I guess we'll see what happens.

Wishing everyone a blessed day!
