I crocheted this hat and scarf from (mostly) cotton yarn for my sensitive-to-wool sister. The scarf is done with a self fringing pattern that starts a new piece of yarn with every row leaving an 8 inch tail and leaving 8 inches at the end of the row too. I tried to match her green and fuchsia jacket with the stripes.

T knitted these very smart slippers in a lovely pink shade for her mother-in-law for xmas. They have very nice lines with excellent shaping (they really look like loafers!) and are skillfully done. But she said they needed just a little something extra. I thought about embroidering a flower on the toe but chose to crochet these flowers for them instead.
