Candy Cane like Donation

These 2 red and white scarves remind me of Candy Canes, how bout you? These 2 crocheted scarves are from Damary's in warm sunny Florida. They're both crocheted. An interest shape to the one on the right. I've not come across one like that before. Thank you for your thoughtful donation, could you send us some sunshine....pretty please! We could sure use it. As of the writing of this post (remember all posts are written ahead and placed in que), it's been raining for days and days. The ground is super soft and squishy. They've issued flood warnings in many areas, we could sure some sun to dry thing up a bit............not to mention, it's cold, we could use some heat too.

  1. I love read and white -- and interesting texture , too. I think everyone but me goes the "long way" and I do the short "across" rows.
    Happy holidays from sunny FL

  2. Nah Sandie, most scarves are knitted/crocheted widthwise (short rows), if you scroll around a bit on the blog. I do both, but widthwise more often.

  3. Hello Sandy!!! Good news!!! I got a nice box out to you today with hats and mittens in it. Should be there in 5-7 days they say. I forgot to count it all, but it'll keep a few heads and hands warm!

    Very pretty scarves up there. They do look very pepperminty! :-)

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?
