The newest old craft seems to be knitting/crocheting and the article of choice is scarfs. I know in one of my groups everyone is excited when someone brings in a new knit or crochet scarf. I am no exception!!! The latest craze is not so much the needle of choice but the yarn we are using!
There are some great yarns out there. The above scraf is made from only 1 row of crochet stitches. Yes that is right only one row! The yarn is a lacey type about 4" wide and you crochet on the long edge. It took only about 1 hour to make!
