I signed up for a subscription box from Darn Good Yarn a few weeks ago, and got my first box on Friday.  The crochet project for the month was a pretty little neckwarmer, made of a roving silk yarn, that is created from silk waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill.  The yarn is fair trade, and helps women in India & Nepal support their families.  I normally don't work with silk, but I really enjoyed this quick little project.  I started it after dinner on Saturday night, and finished early Sunday morning.  I would link to the pattern, but it's not up on their site yet. The whole piece is about 20" around, and 6-7" wide.  The colors are so happy and bright that it was a joy to work on.  Smiley

Isn't it pretty?  It's one of those yarns I love the look of, but wouldn't have picked on my own, so it was nice to have the choice made for me.  I think I'm going to see if I can get another skein of it, and make a matching hat, to give both to the very lovely waitress at the pub that Jim & I got to for breakfast every Sunday.  It is so her, plus she saw me crocheting it yesterday and her eyes got huge!  Lol.  Cheesy

Whatever the question, the answer is always CRAFTING! It's the fix for all the sicks. Makes me feel better every time.

and remember, ALWAYS USE THE GOOD BEADS, YARN, FABRIC!

Love you all, thank you so much for everything. XO
