Welcome to "Stitching For The Seasons"

We're an off-shoot of Scarves From The Heart. In a way we are the heart and soul of the group as we have each agreed to knit and/or crochet scarves on an on-going basis.

Each member of Stitching For the Seasons has commited to make a minimum of one scarf each "season", or every three months. That's not a lot to ask, and everyone is welcome to make as many as they want, there are no limits.

Our goal is to get a balance of feminine and gender neutral colors and designs each season. To achieve this perhaps each member can post their ideas of what they would like to, or what they are making.

Season 1:

Holiday Scarves: Bright cheery scarves in colors to banish the winter blues made to keep the recipients warm. When we think of holiday colors it doesn't mean just red and green, but any bright color that makes one think of the holidays of Chanukka, Christmas, Kwanza, Junkanoo, Las Posadas, New Years, Chinese New Years, Valentines Day and more.

Warmth can be accomplished by using bulky yarns, larger sizes, desnser fabrics as well wools and other natural fibers, so use your imaginations and have fun with it!

Winter scarves should arrive at our new mailing address no later than December 15, 2007. Because of Christmas packages, that may mean mailing as early as December 1 if you don't want to pay for priority shipping.
