Scarves for victims of abuse, pattern ideas added post 963

Recommended Posts

LOL! Hi Victoria and everyone else! I was just coming here to let everyone know how May's totals went and there was your post! I'll put pics up in a minute too!

 

I dropped off 28 scarves for May. That's down a little, but they had some left from the month before, so it was ok. I also gave them 2 beautiful shawls that we received (thank you ladies, you know who you are! :hug), plus I made 4 lapsquares (and 2 wristbands as a trial thing). The counselor that I spoke with really liked the wristbands as an additional item to give with the scarves, so I think that I'll make those up in my spare time (lol!). They are very easy and quick to make. OH! I was asked to speak at their next counselors meeting on July 1st! YIKES!!! I haven't done any public speaking in over 3 years! Not since before I had the craniotomy! Yeah, I'm a little nervous! But this is worth it! Also, the question had been asked as to how many scarves are needed each month. At the center that I bring them, they share between 2 offices and use anywhere from 15-20 on an average month. That means that we should have been having plenty, but as you know they have been running out! Things were not average over some of the winter months. That being said, more scarves have been coming in and it is my goal, if possible, to reach out and help more survivors. If the numbers continue to climb I would like to branch out to another crisis center in MA. I was given the contact info, now I just need to make the "leap of faith"!

 

Pics coming up next!

WOW THEY LOOK GREAT:clap:clap

I still have mine here that are finished. I'm working on more. I received some very pretty purple yarn from a wonderful lady from the 'ville in Germany and I'm going to make a couple of scraves with that. I'm a little behind getting things done because I finally went back to work :yay which is great, but it definitely cuts into my crochet time:eek. I was laid off for 8 months so now I'm trying to get back into the swing of things and it's a little harder than I thought.:lol

How do you make the wrist bands? They look like something quick to add to the scarf if that is what they would like, let me know.

I also love the star lap square. Is there a pattern?

Neat! I love those pictures! I like to see what others mail in too. I'm curious too about the lapsquares, and if those are asked for too. You're doing such a wonderful thing! Wow!!!

Thanks Pat! Purple yarn, yummmm, I love purple!:cheer Congrats on going back to work! I can imagine it must be really hard going back after 8 months though :eek!

The wrist bands are VERY EASY! They don't take long to do either, yeah! I got the pattern here: http://crochet.about.com/od/wristbands/ss/tstband.htm

 

and the star lap square, are you talking about the one all by itself? The green and white one? The 9 pt star is from 'ville member stormdrac! I just added a shell border when I thought it was big enough! I've got to find out how to link to other threads, lol! OK, if I did this right this should be the link to the pattern! Fingers crossed!

The other star, yup, 6 pointer, I used the pattern from the 6>12>24 CAL! The 6 point star part is really easy! LOL! I'm just about to add any points to these, lol! (the thought has crossed my mind :eek)

Talk to you later!

Thank you Victoria! I just finished putting them up on the website. Boy is that ever a challenge for me, lol! They don't make those things easy!

Yes, they did ask for the lapsquares for the summer months for a change of pace if we were interested in making them. It is totally up to the individual. If you decide to make one, the "square" should be at least 18" wide. I usually make them around 25" to 30". It depends on what looks good at the time and if it covers my lap! I've got a "good size" lap too, lol! :yes Hugs!

Ann, just wanted to let you know I have not forgotten you. I have 6 scaves done and I think I may go ahead and send them this week. I was trying to get more done before I sent them out but I seem to really slow down crocheting in the summer. One, it's too hot and the other I'm always outside doing something. So, I'll try and get these out this week. I'll let you know when they go.

Thank you, Pat! I could definitely use them this month! I think a lot of us slow down this time of year with the heat, lol! I know that I've been scrambling to get them made now that the weather has cooled down some the past few days, but I've also had company from out of state that I haven't seen in about 20 years! It all works out though! :hug
