Yarning for Winter

The hubby endorses that fact that I have taken up crochet.  It's a fun way to keep my hands busy and a great way to spend time waiting for kids at their various and sundry activities.

So far, I haven't produced a lot, but I've sure enjoyed learning.  I'm blessed to have a good friend with yarning skills and lots of patience to help me out.

So, long story longer, the hubby bought me two skeins of yarn in gold and black and a couple crochet needles for Mother's Day.  Why gold and black you ask?  Because they are his alma mater's school colors of course, and he wanted a scarf for football season.

Since I love making things for him, this was the perfect gift.  With some advice from said friend, I embarked on a somewhat creative pattern.  With his input, here is the scarf (complete with white stripe the hubby requested to make sure all colors are represented) and a hat to accompany it.  I'm pretty happy with them if I do say so myself.  He is too, and that's all that matters.  Yay for accomplishing something, even it if is winter attire in the dead of summer! 

Do you yarn?
