On My Hook: Icicles & Puffs

 
 
 
 
First of all, Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it!
 
We do not celebrate it here, but as an English teacher I try to bring other cultures and their traditions closer to my students, so Halloween is joyfully expected and as merrily celebrated in an ESL classroom. Needless to say we had tremendously interesting and funny classes today.
 
 
At home, I have my hook inserted into this nice scarf for which I combined both the icicle and the puff stitch. It is coming up nicely, although the colors are much more vibrant and beautiful in reality. This is not one of my usual, comfort color choices, but I've been challenging myself to work with more of such that are out of my comfort zone and I like it so far. 


 
 
Come back tomorrow because we are having a chart reading again!

Icicle stitch is one of my favourite! Although I have known it by another name, larksfoot. The texture it creates is interesting. :-)

Brave to use some other colors than you are used to. I like the effect of the different stitches together! This project is also something really different for you, when I saw the picture on Bloglovin, I had to look twice when I saw that it came from your blog. But it certainly looks pretty! I would expect that you'll put some typically 'Maya' in it afterwards... :-)

I love the colors of the scarf, they are indeed unusual for you but perfect for the season. We should all dare more :-)

I use the same term too, but went with the 'icicle' this time!
