The Arrival of the Phiaro Scarf to Mint Hill

I was glad to model for Nancy  this gorgeous scarf/shawl called Phiaro.  She shared with me she purchased this beautiful alpaca and tencel blend at the Fibre Studio at Yarns to Dye For.  The name of the yarn is Ballet.  You can purchase this pattern for $3.50 online at the Interweave Store.

This Christmas color border was done by Iola.  She can't get enough of this technique and is delighted to be able to donate this to Project Linus.

Janet's donation of Premie Hats.

She also made these crochet caps for full term babies.

Janet has also made several turbans.  Jill loved them.  Janet is donating these to the Cancer Center at the Matthews Presbyterian Hospital.

Several ladies continue to contribute to the Scarves donations.

Shelia's Prayer Shawl drew the attention of those present.  She has been having fun crocheting flowers.

The refreshments kept everyone happy.

The End....:-)
