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:

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!
