Not sure why that title popped into my head this am...was posting this picture and thinking green and that song title came to mind. Funny thing is, I really don't even know the song...lol
Life's been crazy here lately and I've missed playing with you all for our WIPW lately because of it. My Dad was admitted through the ER a week ago and ultimately ended up in ICU. Things were very dicey for several days. I really wasn't ready to go there again (for those of you who remember when my Mother spent 7 long weeks--most of it in The ICU before she past). I'm happy to say after things stabilized, he was transferred to a regular unit and made it home this past wkend. What a relief.
So this simple green scarf is what I worked on in the hospital, sitting with him. It helps to pass the time, and lessen the worry by keeping ones hands busy. I needed something I didn't have to concentrate on, didn't have to count...a simple scarf, crocheted with double crochet. It's nice and thick and large. Chained 29 stitches which measures 8 and 3/4 inches wide. This will be donated to Bridge and Beyond.
I like to make my scarves nice and wide and long for men folk. I'm using an I hook so the stitches are smaller, also making it warmer. When you live outdoors in the cold elements, you need warmth and basic, nothing fancy. Dark colors, and solid colors are also helpful for the homeless, as they don't like to call attention to themselves.
Happy Wed and Happy Work in Progress to you all (links are in the sidebars)
