Crochet Edging

I think I have found that something that will give my reconstruction some color and pattern that it so much needs. It is a scarf. Now I just have to figure out how to drape it, so it looks good. I really wish I had a good dress form. The kind you can adjust to your measurements. I was watching the DIY network and on one of the shows they made one by wrapping the person in duck tape and then stuffing the form. I can just hear my husband now as he tries to cut me out of the tape.LOL
Yesterday I decided to do a little crocheting around the collar. There was a part of me that wanted to go with bulky yarn, but the shirt is a gauze type material and I felt it might be too heavy
It seems these days I have a need to crochet. I have a lot of scraps, so a month ago I started cutting out 2 inch squares and stitching around the raw edges and then crocheting an edging around the square. The light weight quilt will be reversible

Really nice detail, but it did remind me of when I was a kid and when I'd grow to long for my pants...Mom would crochet on the bottoms to make them longer. teehee
