Lens Cozies

I've been a little distracted from my crochet since diving back into photography.  Okay, a lot distracted.  Oops, sorry about that.

I don't have a camera bag, just a backpack, and wanted to keep my lenses safe.  Crochet is so versatile so I made these.

There's no pattern for these. I started a single crochet circle (6 sc) and when it was big enough, stopped increasing. Then I kept using sc until it was long enough to fit each lens (I actually made them bigger so they wouldn't stretch and have more cushion for my lenses). For the last round I did sc, then a chain stitch (skipping a sc) until the round was complete. Then I threaded some yarn through for pull strings. Simple, the way I like things.

One for me

I had a skein of Lion Brand Homespun yarn, lavender sachet, that I bought at a yard sale this past summer for $1.  Its been waiting for me......   The pattern I used was from the Lion Brand website, Wedding Favor Scarf.  Its thick and warm, just what I need for the last of winter.  The color reminds me that Spring is just around the corner, too.

Skinny Scarf

I made this one for my friend Niki, who collects scarves.

I have been doing other things besides photography ;-)

I made a couple scarves, for my daughter and her friend.  They are from the one sitting scarf pattern.
Well, actually, the second one is.  The first one is from my memory of what I thought the pattern was.  Anyway, I like them both and the girls are pleased.  Of course that could also be because I used Caron Simply Soft yarn and they can't stop touching them ;-)
