My not Roman scarf

You didn't think I'd go anywhere (even on our honeymoon) without some kind of crafty project, did you? I took some yarn and some crochet hooks. This is NOT the result of my corcheting in Rome, however.

Because the one I started (atleast three times!) in Rome, which kept me busy both at the train station in Naples and on the train back to Rome, just wasn't... right. So I frogged it and made this one instead when we came home.

It's a moebius scarf (click here to read what the heck that means) and really quick to make! Long and short lengths of yarn tied together and then you just get stuck in there. I used cotton yarn that usually requires a 3.0 or 3.5mm hook, but I used a 8.0mm hook to make it really loose. The rows are alternating single and double crochet.

I like this waaaay better than the Roman one(s). Love all the colours. You need happy colours in winter, right? There's enough black and brown and blue and grey around...
