After Christmas I was all about yarn and knitting and crochet. In the cold evenings I really enjoy working with yarn but this year I really went overboard. My youngest daughter's birthday is in early January and I made this scarf for her with a combination of 3 yarns/fibers. It ended up feeling like fur. I forgot to take a picture before I mailed it to her and so she took this one for me. I think she doubled the scarf for the pictures. She also sent me another of her youngest (my youngest granddaughter) wearing the scarf. I will try to add that picture below. The fibers I used were all different. One was a glittery yarn that almost looked like a crocheted chain. The 2nd one was a fun fur and the 3rd was an eyelash. I usually make scarves with only 15 stitches and 2 fibers. I yarn over on one row and then drop that on the next row. It makes for a nice loose feel. With 3 fibers this one turned out very much thicker and had a fur feel. Here is my granddaughter who is almost 6 wearing the scarf.
A lot of you know me as a fiber artist of sorts. I have been teaching crazy quilting and embroidery for years now, but I also love good food. I have collected and experimented with recipes for over 45 years. I have even edited a cookbook for our local garden club. I also am happy to say that I own my Mum's handwritten recipe book which contains recipes from my grandmother and recipes Mum collected since she and my Dad wed in 1925. When I was searching for a name for my recipe blog where I will be sharing a lot of Mum's recipes this blog name just popped into my head. When I was a child I used to hear ladies at church functions like weddings, potlucks & picnics ask "who is that little girl sitting over there all by herself?" Someone else would always answer "Oh, that's Lulu's Girl; she is very shy!" Some of you know that I've overcome the shyness, but, believe me, it took a very long time!
