Woooo Hooooo! I am excited! I have not done this for almost 20 years!
Ok, so maybe this black scarf with a red racing stripe does not look like much to the artful crocheting mind, but I did it! My grandma suggested double crochet, since my single looks like I am tying knots! Everything I did by way of single crochet was sooooo tight that half way through whatever I happened to be attempting I would have to stop and start anew! Bad news! But, once I got to know the double crochet, I actually made a full fledged scarf! And the kicker is that my 11 year old SON wanted it to be his! He told be when I began crocheting a few weeks ago that he would probably never wear a scarf, so I should basically count him out. I was a little sad, but I did not say anything. I guess I just thought it would be one more that I could donate to a good cause. That was my whole intention. I would crochet scarf after scarf and donate them. No such luck! Did I mention that I have a million kids? Well, my sister made one for one of the kids, but the rest of them seem to be attaching themselves to the things I am making, so I have no donation scarves thus far, but if I am quick and keep making them as fast as my fingers will go, I may just be able to donate a few!?!?
