Broomstick Crochet Infinity Scarf

 All of the yarn from our sheep sold.
Yes, ALL of it.
It's going to a local specialty yarn store,
Sealed With A Kiss
and that is really exciting!


For the unveiling at their trunk show,
 I wanted to wear something I had made 
from our Red Farmhouse Fibers yarn.


I picked a nice soft gray from our girl, Alexa.
She is sweet and quiet but fancy
so I thought this broomstick crochet pattern 
would make a great project for her fiber.

It may seem silly but I like keeping the characteristics
of the sheep consistent with the final project.
It's a personal way of looking at the wool and it's why we process
our fiber from each individual animal.


This infinity scarf was a little challenging since
 I've never done broomstick crochet before.
That's a size 50 knitting needle.  Looks like it could be a weapon!
It worked great though.


You start by chaining on to the "broomstick"
working in one direction and then work
your way back with a shell stitch the other way.


After a while, I got the hang of it.


I love trying new things with yarn!


When it was finished, I joined it together 
with an antique brooch that is just the same color of gray.


I love it.  More broomstick crochet is 
definitely in my future.
Here is a similar pattern on Ravelry.

Exodus 35:25
All the skilled women spun with their hands,
and brought what they had spun,
in blue purple and scarlet material and in fine linen.
