Red Scarfs! The first one is knit with Airy Aunt Bee, so nice and soft. It's the brighter one of the 3. Wish this pictures would load in the order I actually put them in. sigh
The 2 darker reds are both crocheted. The 2nd one I made was with Caron Simply Soft (hate working with that yarn), it's the one pictured on the far right. I do like the texture. Used 2 dc followed by 1 fpdc, continued that pattern throughout. I did not switch to bpdc on the next row, but continued with the fpdc. Added to both ends and around edge with Red Heart, as I ran slightly short. Gave it a bit more substance and a wee bit of shading.
The 3rd scarf, the one pictured in the middle here was my favorite. I did blocks of stitches and really like how they show up with the solid dark red. sc, dc, v-stitches. All 3 were mailed off 2 days ago for The Red Scarf Foundation. Two measured 68 inches, while the 3rd one measured 76 inches long. Widths varied from 6-7.5-8 inches.
Thanks for the good wishes regarding the mess left from Ike, much appreciated. Heading to The Ohio State Football Game shortly, so no more clean up today. We'll hopefully get the rest of it done tomorrow.
Working on the blue and white scarfs now for The Special Olympics. Just finished the 3rd one last night (no pics yet), and hope to get one more done with the yarn I have left.

Well this is fun, and just what I needed. I didn't know this cute award existed; but what a clever idea it is. I was feeling a little blue after my Buckeyes last night played so poorly in the football game against USC. Though not taking anything away from them, they played very well. Congratulations USC.
Now this cute little award was bestoyed on me this am, by Sandie. Thank you very much, much appreciated.
To carry this forward, I am to select 7 blogs and pass along the award. What a fun and positive thing to do. We all need a hand up now and again.
Here are the rules:
1) Add the logo of the award to your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you (as shown above).
3) Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog.5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs.
**interruption here, need to look for batteries for my mouse. Getting a message my batteries are critical. Yikes.
Batteries, that took some doing. But, I'm back. Sandie had a rule as she looked at her to nominate for the award, blogs that are updated at least monthly, and about crafting. I like a bit of variety both in my own blogging and in my visiting of blogs; though I would say crafting is the biggest topic. I enjoy all my blogging buddies, but like Sandie tried to select those I didn't see on her list.
- Kristin's blog, always fun to see what her kiddos are up to.
- Litknit of this and that, lots of good stuff
- Tammy's, such a wonderful photographer and fun stories about her family
- Sissie's such beautiful lapghan's to see, so many varieties for such a good cause
- Kahucho, she makes such interesting and unusual items.
- Joanie's Knitting by the Ocean..she's very talented
- Priscilla's, By hook or needles
I'm off now to go leave messages for the above blogs, and pop in on Sandie's to say thank you.
During the game last night I almost finished my Sp. Olympics scarf (picture tomorrow), have a few rows left of my 3rd Red Scarf Scarf...those will go out in tomorrow's mail.
I need to take pictures of and document my stash for Ravelry...
I need to get my projects posted over on Ravelry, very behind on that
Dug up some plants for my brother and his wife, and need to tidy up the yard from that. Do some weeding too.
Have a super day, one and all.
