The Things we do for Love

Another awesome scarf crocheted and donated by our friend Sandie P from Louisisana.  Awesome shades of blue, what type of yarn did you use?  I've not seen this mix before but really like it.  This would be well suited for male or female, adult or teen...Nice!

**June is slipper month, be sure to check out the slipper tab above, before you begin knitting and crocheting**

**Email me details of when, how etc you learned to knit or crochet, please don't leave the details in the comments below**

Few days ago, Sandie shared her story of how, when she learned to crochet.  It's a cute story, hope you enjoy it.

I learned to crochet in 1980, in Mississippi, from my cousin's wife Katy and her friend Diane. I used a J hook. From that trip I took away the basics. When I got home, I got yarn and hook of my own, along with a leaflet for how-to. No Internet then. I made afghans for everyone in my family. I only made afghans (large, bed size ghans) for many years.

I started a ripple afghan for my boyfriend (now my husband) just a year or so after I learned. He asked if it could be wider so I made another strip, attached it to the first few inches I'd already done, and continued the pattern forward. The things we do for love. LOL

    GOOD STORY SANDIE. Very sweet. Also liked the scarf. Hope some man gets it. I always feel we dont do enough for them so much more fun to do things for kids and the ladies. Whoever gets it, I am sure they will be pleased. Such a lovely mix of blues. GOOD JOB

  2. I agree on the men part Marj...thanks for the visits.

  3. I agree Marj and Sandy. I prefer doing for the men when making my hats but recently through in some female colors with the current groups of hats I've made (and are waitin to go to Bridge and Beyond. I love this color scheme also. I gravitate towards the varigated and sometimes that is not a good thing! lol Wonderful donation Sandie!

  4. Very nice scarf Sandie! Love the different shades of blue.

  5. Thanks! The yarn is Loops and Thread Charisma Lakeside

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?
