A bunch of us are making scarves and donating them because January is Heart Awareness Month. I made this one very fast, it is just a small one but fits nicely around your neck and is just as good as a fashion piece or a warmth addition. It is worked lengthwise and you only have 12 rows to do and you are finished. It doesn't get much easier that that. I am including the link to a whole page of scarves from Crochet Pattern Central, there are Keyhole scarves in it also plus regular types of scarves. If you decide to help with this worthy project I am also including the address where you should mail yours.
This all came about because of a very good friend of mine and a very sweet person by the name of Barbara Moore. She and her husband went on a trip to visit her son so naturally she crocheted while Leroy drove....sounds like a perfect arrangement to me. Anyway, she was telling us that she actually finished her red scarf on the trip. Well, we all wanted to know about this red scarf project. We are sort of like the Muskeeters--One For All And One For All. So she explained that January is Heart Awareness Month and February is Womens Heart Awareness Month and that is why she was working so hard on getting her scarf finished so she could start another one. Of course, the whole bunch of us jumped in and said we'd help make them also.
Finally this long story gets to an end...sure it does! One more idea. I know all you sweet people have your own favorite charities and you work all year on items to send to them. If you could find it in your busy schedule to make just one red scarf you would not only be just making a scarf you would be adding some warmth to the world and a smile on so many faces. I'm not begging I'm simply asking you to think about it. Thank you ever so much for listening to my long story, and "Thanks" to all that decide to help us. But especially thanks to Barbara Moore for brining this to our attention, you go girl!!
