Scarf for the Seafarers Mission

I have sorted out all my yarn into bags and labeled them with things like, Scarves, Baby, Blocks, Smoothie Hats so that I know the yarns best suited for each project.
The Scarves bag has odd sized balls of yarn in various colours so will make lovely stripped scarves. The Blocks bag has larger balls of yarn and again in various colours that will make bright blocks the Baby bag has pastel shades and white yarn ready for blankets, hats and Angel pockets. The Smoothie Hat bag  has tiny amounts of yarn that would be perfect for the ting Innocent Smoothie hats.

So now that it is all sorted out I made a start on a scarf for the Seafarers Mission.

They have patterns that can be printed off and a huge bonus a Free post address. With postage on the increase this is something I try to keep as low as possible.

What could be easier than a scarf that is Knit only great for TV watching all I had to do was change colours every two rows carrying the yarn up the side as I went so now my green and brown yarn is used up and it has made a lovely 50 inch long scarf. More will be made later and maybe a hat or two as well between making blocks and baby things.


  1. Good for you sorting out all your wool Paula, this scarf is lovely and will keep someone warm and cosy. :)

  2. Thank you I like making scarves and these are so easy and will go to someone who really needs them.
