C2C Scarf Crochet Pattern

Hello crocheters! I’m sorry for my extended absence on the blog! I caught that awful flu that was going around, and didn’t have the energy to do much of anything for about two weeks. Once I was up and at ’em again, I got started on a cross stitch project for a local fundraiser. It’s being run by the McKinney Center, a local art center here where I live in Tennessee. From their website: “The arts program is designed to inspire area residents through appreciation for and participation in the various forms of art and expression. The comprehensive arts program offers a variety of educational opportunities for learning, such as, drawing, painting, mosaics, theater, dance, and music.”

They are holding a fundraiser where local artists create a few pieces to donate. Then each ticket purchased (or any money donated otherwise) is put towards scholarships for kids to attend art classes! I am so passionate about this cause! I think it’s imperative for children to express their creativity, and to be given the opportunities to learn how to do that. Here’s the cross stitch piece I finished for the fundraiser:

I promise I’m not turning this blog into Couch Surfer Cross Stitchers! However, if there is enough interest from all of you, I would be happy to share cross stitch patterns on occasion. I just love using yarn and thread in different mediums to create!

Beautiful Boxes Scarf Crochet Pattern

Hello! I hope you are all having an amazing January so far! It’s unseasonably warm (at least today!) here in Tennessee, so I thought it would be the perfect time to break out one of my lighter weight scarves. Last year I shared a yarn review for Caron Cakes yarn. I was so excited to try out self-striping yarn! Well…did you know that Red Heart now has their own line of self-striping yarns, appropriately called Red Heart Stripes?! They have some of the most amazing colors, and I couldn’t wait to try out a few of them!

Yarn Review – Caron Cakes

When I first started learning to crochet I used strictly acrylic yarns. This was mostly because they weren’t as expensive and I didn’t know if I’d ever get good enough at this hobby to invest real money into it! As time went on and I felt more confident in my abilities I started trying different … Read moreYarn Review – Caron Cakes
