- Aunty Mum
- The past two years have been all about adjusting to motherhood and finding my way through it via craft. The out pouring of this came in the form of my blog Aunty Mum. Now I'm finally finding my feet, the children are growing, I'm getting some independence and my interests are morphing . . . into cooking. Join me in exploring creativity in many forms, food, fabric, frowns and laughter.

I whipped out my Stitch and Bitch - The Happy Hooker book and found this scarf pattern. You know, I really recommend this book for all crocheters because I've made almost half of all the project in there now and every winter I open it up and make one more.
The scarf in the pattern is only one colour but as I tend to dwell in black clothes over the winter months and because I've claimed my fushia flower hat for myself I chose to do a striped version of the colours of my hat.
Thankfully netball was cancelled as I hadn't finished it yet. I took the kids to Nanny and Granddad's for a hot swim and I sat watching and finishing the scarf. My fingers became more and more numb but I was determined to get it done. Needless to say, the minute the last tail was safely tucked away, never to be seen again, an eight year old tapped me on the shoulder and asked "Cool, can I have it?" Well, she can't "have" it but she did get to wear it for the rest of the afternoon. I think I'll be making another one very soon.
