Swing Coat Week 1

I'm about 2 1/2 inches away from completing the body of the coat. I dropped the sleeves (live stitched held with waste yarn) in the dark brown just before the white section. The piece looks much better in person and I think the coat will look much nicer than the last one.

I have the coat on 2 sets of very long circular needles and it takes some doing to get around now....but with only 2 1/2 inches left, it's not so bad.

Scrumbling Right Along...

I'm so glad to be doing this again. Here is a freeform patch that is entirely crocheted. It actually started as three patches that I pieced together. The yarns are both commercial and handspun from sock weight to bulky. This is unembellished but I will down the road create more interest with beadwork and buttons. I never know where these scrumbles take me but in the end it's always a pleasant surprise.
