Mallory Qualls’ Fundraiser

This benefit hit home for me. A young girl who is battling lyme was having a fundraiser, I had very short notice to make the items and get them there but I felt compelled to help in any way that I was able. I sat up for hours the night before the day I had to express mail the package out and finished up these two scarves. One was a white diamond shaped scarf that my mom made . I decided to edge it with fun furry yarn to breathe some life into it. With blue silvery yarn I made a thicker variation of the chenille scarves I have listed for sale. Even though it was under pressure I thoroughly enjoyed being able to create things to help other people 🙂

Please contact me if you are interested in having some of my pieces at your auction for a benefit or fundraiser you are having!! craftingforlyme@me.com

[I will add images from the fundraiser when I get them, I can’t wait to see them!! :)]

Angela Castle’s Fundraiser

I love being able to participate in fundraisers! For this one, I made a slightly thicker and longer version of the royal purple scarf for sale on this blog. Mom made a beautiful grey and black set for the benefit! A grey cloche type hat with a black flower and a grey tunisian crocheted scarf with a black flower. I had to send them as a set as I couldn’t bear to break apart a gorgeous set like that.I am hoping they helped Angela raise money!!

If you are having a fundraiser please let me know and I can see if we can whip something up for you as well!!!

(will add pictures from the benefit when I get them, I can’t wait to see them!!! :))

Mossy Moss Hat

Price: $20.00 (USD) includes shipping

While wandering around Odd Lot in Pennsylvania I found a small section with yarn. I am famous for buying tons of scrapbooking stuff at this store, I absolutely love it there. This specific yarn looked interesting and hard to work with, so naturally I had to have it. It is a curly yarn and has a gray base color with bright greens and blues throughout it.

This handmade hat was made with tons of love.  This piece is fun, different and because of the gradients and variation of colors it can be paired with many different hues. It is hand washable and should be layed flat to dry. No ironing.

Size: Small-Medium Adult Female

Color: Gray, Green, Blue

Material: 95% Wool, 5% Polyamide

Washing Instructions: Hand wash ONLY, lay flat to dry, no ironing

Candy Necklace Scarf

Price: $35.00 (USD) includes shipping

WARNING: I ADVISE AGAINST EATING THIS SCARF, although it does look edible!

This is the second in the collection of scarves that have been inspired by my neighbor who knits amazingness. I found this metallic yarn and decided to combine it with the white to brighten it up. Now the white yarn is a whole nother <— (I know that is not a word, but I like it anyway) story, which I will clearly tell below.

I went to a great store in Pearl River, NY called the Stitchery. They had floor to ceiling displays of breathtaking yarn. I found some incredible yarn to take home. While my mom and I were checking out, we were discussing donating percentages of sales to charity and the super sweet woman behind the counter told me she had a bag of white acrylic yarn she would love to donate. I gladly accepted and promised to furnish pictures of all the pieces I created with this yarn.

This handmade scarf was stitched using the double crochet stitch and made with tons of love (not to mention fun). Half of the scarf was crocheted with both the metallic fiber and the white yarn together. Two inches or so of the opposite end was done the same with the remainder of the side just white. The ends and the white portion are all edged with a pastel colored fur yarn. It is fuzzy, fun and comfy.

Length: approximately 62 inches long by 4 1/4 wide

Color: White with metallic and non metallic pastels

Material: White Yarn = Acrylic, Fur Yarn = Polyester, Metallicy Yarn = 26% Viscose, 18% Dralon, 56% Polyamide <— I have no idea what these last three are, but it is super soft!

Washing Instructions: Hand wash ONLY, lay flat to dry, no ironing

“In your face!” Pink scarf

Click on the pictures they get bigger!!!


Price: $32.00 (USD) includes shipping

So on Halloween I went to trick or treat at one of my beloved neighbor’s houses….my trick or treating antics are pretty limited considering I am 28 😉

While I was there she showed me some beautiful knitted stuff she was making with two different threads together at the same time….so that is where this idea came from.

This handmade scarf was stitched using the double crochet stitch and made with tons of love. I definitely had a hard time parting with it, as I do love it a LOT. It is funky, and fun, and totally in your face! The pink is amazing by itself, but may be too “in your face” for some, so I used a white and navy thread to calm the pink down a little bit. The combination is amazing. It really stands out. It has fringe on the end of each side and is a substantially long scarf so you can wrap it for uber warmth. It is very soft as it is made out of acrylic. It can be machine washed but I always recommend using a gentle cycle in a knit bag or just hand-washing it. The thread does say it can be machine dryed but I would not if I were laundering it.

So here’s the nitty gritty:

Length: approx 70 inches long (fringe to fringe) by 3 1/2 inches wide

Color: navy blue and white with shocking hot pink

Material: Mostly Acrylic

Washing Instructions: Machine Washable (be gentle), hang to dry

To make a purchase please email me at craftingforlyme@gmail.com
