Gave Up and Moving On

Last week I posted about a new pattern of my own that I was trying to work up.  It seemed like such a simple thing in my head, but getting it to work out with hook and yarn was quite another.  Rather than get more frustrated, I'm putting that aside for a bit and going to move on to something I do know how to crochet - scarves!

Sandy over at Bridge and Beyond collects knit and crochet projects year around for the homeless and less fortunate in the greater Columbus area so I thought I'd go through my stash and see how many scarves I could whip up for her.  The cold weather will be here in Ohio before you know it and a warm scarf would be welcomed by those who spend the bulk of their day outside.

It's been chilly and rainy here and more of the same expected today, so a perfect day to stay inside and crochet.  I haven't decided which pattern(s) to use yet but will likely try a few with different color combinations, perhaps stripes going the long way.  I've got enough yarn in my stash that I should be able to complete several to donate this month.  I'm anxious to see what I can do with smaller bits of yarn and will likely end up with more than one 'scarf of many colors'.

What're you up to this week?  Getting ready for fall?

To play along on Work-in-Progress Wednesday, make your blog post for Wednesday be about something you're working on - some type of craft, renovation project, landscaping, even that novel you're writing. You can play along even if it’s not Wednesday; I leave each WIP up until the following week. Copy the code below Rosie's picture and paste it into your blog post so that others can follow too, and see the rest of the projects that are posted here.

Make sure to click 'You are next' below to add your link here so my readers can follow it to your blog post. 

  ** Note ** Several of you are signing up at the bottom but you’re not putting the WIP Wednesday link on your own blog. If you don’t, your readers won’t be led back here to see what others are doing and what WIP Wednesday is all about. It’s not hard, just copy the code beneath the photo above and paste it into your blog post. If you’re having trouble, please let me know and I’ll try to walk you through it.
