Announcement   The Thin Blue Line and Thin Red Line collections are my tribute to police officers and firefighters.

*SCARF LENGTH: A good rule of thumb is for a scarf to be at least your height in inches plus several extra inches. This works for most average height folks. For someone who is very short or very tall, you may want to take other factors into account. I prefer a scarf which at about 5" longer than my height. Any extra length is just more to tie around myself!

If you're not sure, please take a few moments to measure an old scarf you love or determine the length you prefer by measuring with a string.

About

Inspired by my Fifteen Year-old Daughter!

When my daughter came home one day with a hook and some yarn, I wondered what was going on. My teenager was crocheting? I didn't even know how to crochet! After watching her for a couple of weeks, I asked her to show me. I made a little single crochet square and we named it "Sparkle." Sparkle started it all...

Fast forward months later and imagine us standing side by side in the yarn aisle. I have a little yarn buying compulsiveness issue and I'm loading up the basket with any color I think is pretty. "Mom, don't you think we have enough yarn?" I shook my head at her and replied, "It's okay! I took money out of my savings account today, so we have plenty." She laughed. "Mom, say that again..." I looked at her puzzled. "It's okay...I took money out of my savings account...??" She looked around; of course there was an older lady shopping in earshot, carefully choosing yarn. More loudly my daughter said, "You took money out of OUR savings to buy YARN?" The older lady turned to me and looked at our cart, and then at me. "That is a lot of yarn," she said with a smile. I'll get my daughter back for that some day!!

The shopping trip ended well enough. We said together in a sing song voice, "A family that crochets together stays together!" And we laughed.

This store is the solution to my yarn buying madness! I enjoy buying yarn and I enjoy creating new and unique things. And I have my daughter to thank for the inspiration!
