Chunky Lace Infinity Scarf-Crochet Scarf Charity Drive

I will just admit, I am a horrible blogger! I try to do it more often and be more interactive with it, but I just cannot find time, nor anything to blog about.

That being said, I was asked to be part of a Crochet Charity Drive hosted by my friend Sonya at Blackstone Designs. Over the last few months, several amazing designers have taken their time to create a new scarf pattern, or donate an existing pattern for the drive. I am humbled that I would be asked!

I decided to donate one of my current patterns, the Chunky Lace Infinity Scarf. It will remain free on my blog, or you can download a copy from my Ravelry for only $2.00. So let's get to it!!

I am making a comeback!

Hey, is this thing on? Have you missed me? Probably not because I don't even have that many posts, BUT that is about to change!!

I plan to keep my blog going and making it a more permanent fixture in my business. I will be designing new patterns, (some free!) And releasing them here on the blog! I will be offering sales and discounts as well, so be sure you get notifications of the new posts. I will be sure to post on the page of when a new one is up.

My kids start school on Monday, so that is giving me more time to design while they are away and learning. Leave a comment on the blog of what items you would like to see designed this upcoming fall and winter. If I select and use your idea, you will get a copy for free!!

Please bare with me and stick around as we journey to a bigger and better Yarn Medleys from the Heart!
