Always fun to see new Scarves for our Homeless

crocheted scarfWhy doesn't purple show up well in pictures on blogs? I know I've seen Sandie blog about something purple not showing up as to what color or shade it really is. Puzzling. At any rate, this is not a black and white scarf; but a purple (dark purple) and white scarf crocheted by Sandie (in Louisiana). We've got several Sandie's (with ie's) now so I'll try to differentiate.

I have no clue what stitch this is and hope Sandie's pop's in to tell us. It's quite interesting. I resembles those mile a minute styles with the curved edge and worked lengthwise vs widthwise; but other than that...I'm clueless.

I can tell you I like it, and like all Sandie's items is very well made; but what it is...a mystery.

Many thanks as always Sandie for your on going fabulous support. It is so very much appreciated.

  2. Sandy, that scarf is indeed a mile-a-minute scarf made with two strips. The pattern is an afghan pattern from Mile-a-minute Afghans (Leisure Arts and Oxmoor House c1996) called Restful Rainbow. I joined the 2 strips with whipstitch. The strips are just 6 dc across. It is the edging that makes the difference.

    I removed the other post cos I spelled your name wrong. My mind was elsewhere. LOL

  3. That is one of my favorite patterns because it is so simple to make, although if you want to make a larger piece (like a full size afghan) you have to make lots and lots of strips and you have a lot of tails to sew in. That's why I like scarves though I will make the occasional lapghan too.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
