Still on a bit of a crochet binge….

Standard

Here is an easy free pattern from Crystal Palace Yarns. It’s called the Crochet Block Scarf is on their imageimage image image imagewebsite. Our sample is in Mini Mochi which is very soft, but it would be equally effective in many of the Noro yarns. If you wanted a more summery accessory, we have some beauties as well.

but the 60th pair of mittens is complete! I started this charity knitting on March 9th with only the thought of using up some of my sock yarn stash. When I got close to 30 pairs, I thought I might stop then (as that represented 60 mittens, and you know I turned 60 imagethis year!). I still had some stash, so. thought, ‘I’ll just do a few more’, and now, all of a sudden, I have 60. The plan is to take a break for now, but I still have a small amount of stash left. Just for yucks, I did the math and this project represents 42 skeins of 100 gram sock yarn. For any of you who might like to contribute, we have patterns available and will be happy to collect them between now and Qoctober 1st
