More scarves #2

Probably not the most exciting post as it's quite similar to the last are the pics of my latest hooking efforts - More Scarves.....I've gotten a lot of interest in these and have been busy completing my wwfy list.
The first two are an order for Kelly.....I'm quite impressed with my photography of late :)

This would have to be my favorite!

And these two are #2 and #3 of a total of six scarves for Mel........

Going to have a wee break from crochet while I finish a test knit but then it's on to scarf #4 for Mel - a lovely deep red!

Calliope and her name...

Introducing lil "Calliope Hartlyn" .....Our newest family member was born on the 3/7/12.

Her name is a special one (as are all our childrens names) that came to me one night as I was drifting off to sleep....I hadn't been thinking of names at the time and it certainly hadn't been a name I had come across before so I kind of ignored it.....anyway a few days later it popped in my head again and curiosity got the better of me and on the internet I went searching for what it was. The more I read the more I liked it and so I told my husband who immediately said he loved it too.
It was a hard name at first as we would forget it....we'd look at each other and say 'what were we thinking of naming her' LOL took us quite a while for it to stick in our heads but it was determined and we knew it was a sign that it was our daughters name.

Pronounced ka-LYE-ah-pee it is of Greek origin and means 'beautiful voice'.
In Greek mythology Calliope was the eldest of the muses and named 'muse of epic poetry' and also the goddess of eloquence which she bestowed on princes and kings.
It is also believed that she was Homer's muse and the inspiration for the poem 'Odyssey'.
