More hairpin lace crochet scarves

It snowed and there is a little on the ground near me so I will be traveling around the city today to find more snow. I got a few photos at 3:00 AM and it snowed a bit while I was walking around. . . NOW I have to find more since that is all we got this close to the Columbia River which is near sea level. Going to travel by bus to other parts of town to find the deeper snow. Finally snow on the ground near me. . . I know that some think I am nuts but I LOVE SNOW!

Our church group crocheted and knitted red scarves for college students that are orphans or foster kids. I understand it is a project all over the US and people everywhere participate. Our little group made 37 -- I made 5. We had three weeks to do it. I used a variety of red yarns to make these.

This shows the pattern of the latest scarf I made. I have to finish up the ends yet.

This is a new type of yarn I am experimenting with. It is very soft and bulky too. I think I am going to like it!

Yea!!! I'm happy you finally have some snow. Enjoy your outing!
I love that red color. You are aware red is my favorite color. You are doing these for such a worth cause, as the others were. I know it must bring you pleasure to know they are.
It was in the 40's here today.

That sure is nice of your and your frinds to create those scarves for the students. It was hard to choose but I think my favorite is the last one!

Good luck on the snow hunt!

Oh, I'm so jealous! Still no snow here in TN and it's 50 degrees and raining. Enjoy yourself!
