Collage Crochet Pink & Purple Scarf

I have become a BIG fan of "collage crochet". Collage crochet is when you use various colors and weights of fibers when crocheting a piece.

The scarf below was the first item that I collage crocheted. I did it in pinks and purples. I used various "yarns": acrylic, mohair, chenille, polyester, ribbon, fun fur, eyelash, and more! This scarf is currently for sale in my eBay store.

I am a big fan of using varying shades of the same color, and I am currently working on a blue toned afghan in collage crochet.

Thanks for being my first follower. Maybe one day I will join one of your crochet swaps. My daughter-in-law and my daughter (Amanda) have turned me on to this blogging stuff, Amanda does a lot of swaps, but I haven't ventured into that yet.

I ready your comments about the 63 square afghan you made. I have been making an afghan for my step-son and daughter-in-law for christmas. I got the idea that I felt like crochetting something back in Sept. well when I finally got around to doing it I figured out that I needed to do 10 squares per day (they are 3" squares) in order to get it done in time, that doesn't even include the time to sew them together and the border, so I understand how you might not want to try that one again. It's going to be beautiful, but I don't think I could stand it again. I guess if I just did it leasurely it wouldn't be so bad.
