60 Day Scarves

My three scarves are done for the 60 Day drive!  Hurray!  I was inspired by one of the ideas about the scarves on Crocheting with Dee not needing to be just plain ole scarves.   I made these top-of-the-hip long with pockets on both sides for assorted sundries like paperbacks, glasses, AC frozen fingers.  Thought I would take them up to the nursing home and see if anyone relegated to a wheelchair all day would like to try them out to see how they hold up to what I was aiming for.  I didn't want a lot of length in the back like a regular sized shawl to avoid bunched up lumpies, but enough to cover the shoulder blades, upper part of the upper arm, the back of the neck,and cover the front of the chest.  The hip length was to keep things in the pockets and out of the lap to avoid "spillage", and to stay out of the wheel spoke area.  So I made two like this.  One has a collar that can be opened or folded flat, the other "uncollared". 

I am now going to attempt to actually put a picture on this page.  I've got my fingers crossed I don't *low this whole site up100_0770.jpg by doing so!!!!  lol  Wish me luck.  Woohoo!  I did it!  This first picture is of the collared shawlette with the collar opened up flat.  I am now going to see if I can get a picture on here with the collar folded over.  Here we go again!  I'm so proud of myself just now.  :-D     It seems to have worked.  Yay!  (look Dee, look! i'm learnin'!)  I'm a real pro now!  lol


100_0772.jpgThe pictures I have of the second scarfy shawlette came out a bit on the dark side. They're in   the Picture Gallery, but I'm going to try taking some more of that one in the daylight and see if I like them better than the ones on here right now.  Well it was fun trying this "new" technology out for the night, but it's time to put daughter and self in the bed for the night. 

 

 

Thanks for visiting, and come again!  Good night.       ~~~Nancy 

P.S. my six year old took the pictures for me!  Did a pretty good job!

More Pictures

Well I did it.  Said I would, and I did!  {"Wha Ha Ha Ha Ha"}  Added more pictures of a few things I didn't send out the door.  I still have a couple more items, but haven't taken any pictures of them yet.  I've been working on three scarves for the 60 Scarves in 60 Days project; two of them are done, and the third should be done either tomorrow or Thursday.  I'll take some pictures of them too.  Time to go.  I hear my daughter doing something upstairs, but not quite certain what.  A lot of banging of something!

Talk to you later, have a good evening.

Getting Site Management Down

WOW!  This is hard work!!!  Computer genius I am not, but I did finally figure out how to add some links I like to visit.  Now that I have it figured out,  I'll be adding more later!!  As my friend Dee says. Wha Ha Ha Ha Ha!  lol

But I have used up my allotment for today, my daughter will be home from school soon.  That means the end of MY playtime.  :)

P.S.

Ok.  Silly me.  The directions said to refresh the page if the white square with the black arrow is there for awhile.  Duh!  I finally remembered to do that, and viola, there are my thumbnails!!  Yay me again.  :}  Let me know what you think of them.  Thanks.

Now,  good night.... again.

Pictures figured out?!

Ok, now I think I have most of the bugs worked out as far as getting pictures on here.  If you click on the "my picture gallery" link on the right side, I've got five loaded up so far!  Yay me!  But....for what ever reason, the thumbnails are not showing up.  Click on the square where the pictures should be, and each one appears in all its glory.  lol  I told you I would be making mistakes!  Now to figure this one out.......

Good night! :)
