Finished the One Skein Crocheted Scarf

Hey, not bad for a first effort, right? It's the One Skein Crocheted Scarf from Debbie Stoller's Happy Hooker crochet book. I used Plymouth Tweed worsted weight yarn.

Crocheting is new to me, but this scarf went pretty fast and I like it. Don't know if I'll wear it, since I don't wear scarves very often, but at least I feel good about getting it done. I now feel like I have a grasp on some concepts - the double crochet as well as the shell stitch.

Other things to point out: I am doing pretty good about eating healthy. On Sunday night, I cut up a bunch of vegetables, made salads and prepared for the week ahead with healthy choices in my fridge. I made this: and this:

Diet Tip/Sanity Saver: I also made the chili recipe posted the other day. It was really good. And one thing I was really thrilled to find at the grocery store was this Wishbone Salad Spritzer - I bought the Caeser Delight with olive oil (only 2 calories per spray) and also an Oriental salad spritzer. This is really a happy find. What's better than delicious AND low cal?

Hey! I had just that kind of spritzer on my steamed veggies last night! Great minds and all that, right?

Wow! You're picking up crochet very fast. You give hope to us hopeless. ;)
