Project Linus and the V Stitch

Couple thoughts that have been floating through my mind off and on
for many years, so I thought I'd share...

I've always wanted to do some kind of volunteer work but since I was
busy raising my own kids, I was selfish with my time.  Not a bad thing
just the truth!  Now that the kids are grown, the itch is still there and 
you know what that means....

I've incorporated my latest hobby into something that gives back to 
the community.  Yep, I crochet blankets/afghans for Project Linus.
This is a great way for me to volunteer anytime because I can crochet
anywhere; at home mostly but you can take it to the park, on the bus,
waiting for an appt. where ever, when ever!  Plus I can control my
volunteer time and donation.  To me this is a perfect fit!

So who gets these blankets/afghans???  Children!  From premie
newborns up to teenagers!  So for now, and maybe forever, I've found
my place to volunteer that fits my lifestyle and their needs.

Happy Hooking!

Crochet Scarf with V Stitch

The two scarves I finished over Labor Day Weekend for 
my daughter.  Working on a third one for ME!

This is a fantastic quick & easy pattern that makes
a great accessory for many outfits.

You can find the pattern at:

I used Caron Simply Soft with an H hook.
