Cashmere Crocheted Casual/Underscarf Scarf

Crocheted ScarfI made this little scarf lickety-split last weekend. It's left over fingering weight cashmere in Nutmeg that I got from Colourmart Cashmere. Some people haven't like their yarn, but I have to say that it softens and fluffs up beautifully when washed. I mean, I crocheted this on a USK hook. The bloom is incredible. People who use cashmere frequently also claim that you can put it in the washer (maybe dryer, too)!

If you are interested, the formula for this scarf goes like this: Chain 130, SC 8 rows or caston with the SC foundation and SC 7 rows. The border is made by chaining 5 stitches and SC into second stitch all the way around the edge of scarf. Weave in ends. Tada!

If you use a yarn that will not bloom like this, it will look much lacier.

Warning: Don't read the following if my personal entries have been TMI lately for you.

Soap opera time: Faux-SO is coming back from his trip sooner because he wants to help me get everything settled. When I first found out about everything I freaked out and asked him to do this, but he thought it was a stupid idea. Now he thinks he should because he feels so bad. He's a rogue and he knows it.

It's troublesome because it's been difficult contacting people about rentals with the holiday weekend and all. The perfect scenario would be me finding a place and moving out the day he comes back. Otherwise, it will be really uncomfortable staying in the same house as he and if he is staying with his real-girlfriend and I have to be in contact with him I might spontaneously combust. Aye, yaye, yaye! I'm over him but that's too much too soon.

Oh sweetie, I hope you know we're all thinking of you and sending good vibes your way. My first husband did the same thing to me. We had a trial separation and counseling and he moved her into our house the first week I left. I walked away and haven't seen him since. He's not worth the time. I hope all goes well with your move, and good luck finding a place asap.

definately not worth the time nor thought to consider the faux so.
And as far as cashmere in the washer and dryer???? hmmmm... not I, says timid me.

aaaahhhh MAN! I just read your last post and this one..... O.M.G.! You know, it's SO classic LIAR to completely over react and go over board and make you think you are crazy for having a gut feeling backed up by evidence and inconsistancy. I'm so sorry you are going thru all this junk, I hope you can get out of there sooner rather than later. =(

Dog is too good a name for him, he's the lingering stench of a skunk's toilet.

God what an asshole. I'm so sorry - and what an asshole. I don't even know him and I want to hit him with something that will cause him much pain.

Wish I lived closer - I'd help you move just so you didn't have to deal with him.

Some men just truly suck.

For a couple of days now I've been trying to come up with a comment that would be printable, but it's very hard. What a jerk. Good luck finding a place, you're obviously better off without him.

Lovely scarf. I like to crochet too and I'll be giving this a try.

I am so happy that I found your site. It appears we have some things in common besides knitting. Thought you might want to be the first to see the pattern for the triple lindee!

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern. It will be soon!
