Mushroom Walk Scarf Day 6 – Tread carefully off the beaten track…

Welcome to Day 6 of our Mushroom Walk scarf crochet-along! 😃🍄

Today, as we head further into the forest and enjoy our search for mushrooms, we may be tempted to veer from the path. Tread carefully off the beaten track…We don’t want to damage any of the mushrooms we’re trying to see or trip over on the way! 😄

Our crochet stitches in this part are lacy and wavy and resemble the footpaths that are not always solid or straight!

But if we do carefully veer off the beaten track we might be rewarded with some beautiful views and beautiful mushrooms!

Yesterday we went on a little walk in our local park. I turned it into a mushroom walk (of course😆) and we had to veer off the main paths to find any! We only found the one… but it was beautiful and worth treading carefully to see it…

We did see some beautiful autumn colours… just look at this leaf!!

And we were treated to a beautiful blue sky…

Yesterday’s round-up was wonderful once again… I pop into the Facebook Group and Instagram regularly throughout the day and it always makes me smile!

Just look at them all…

Now that we’re at the half-way mark our scarves are becoming filled with more and more colour! I love seeing them all.

Yesterday in the Facebook Group a couple of people shared this article which is a good read if you’re interested and very topical for our mushroom walk…

I do so love the sharing that goes on during a crochet-along!

For those of you who have purchased the printer friendly pattern on Ravelry it has now been updated to include Day 6: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mushroom-walk-scarf
