Oh, I'm with you on this. Made me laugh
I'm liking the look of that yarn, especially for the scarf. Everything looks great, and at first glance, I wondered if those first two were shawls or ponchos. Your heart-sister does very nice work indeed.The last two pictures - the scarf and the blue hat - I did those with a different kind of yarnn. The scarf is actually just a single skein of yarn (it used the ENTIRE skein), and the hat is about half the skein of yarn. It's a more fluffy homespun style of yarn, but it works up fast and is pretty warm.
Definitely shawls. To get a good photo of them, I had to do it with someone wearing them (my daughter), and it kind of had to be done from the back. So it's hard to tell in the photos, I guess. But yes, definitely shawls.I'm liking the look of that yarn, especially for the scarf. Everything looks great, and at first glance, I wondered if those first two were shawls or ponchos.

I LOVE #9. Greens and Browns, totally my earthy happy place colors! Nice work hon~And, as I mentioned before over in the product thread, I've been working on a bunch of yarn crafts for the pipeline protesters out in North Dakota, as well. At the moment, that's about the only things I am doing in regards to the crochet and yarn crafts. Pretty much everything I make right now is getting boxed up and mailed out to Standing Rock.
My girl surprised me as well on this; she jumped right on board with it as soon as she found out they were planning to stay camped out on-site through the winter. Regardless of what anyone thinks or doesn't think about the issue on hand, I know what the winters get to be like out there, and they do have elders and children in addition to the folks standing on the front lines. Frostbite and hypothermia will be a real concern. So we've just been making all sorts of winter stuff, as much and as quickly as we can. This is why my 3D has slowed down a bit lately. I am still working on the 3D stuff, but the bulk of my energy is going into this at the moment... and pretty much anything I happen to earn through 3D is also getting donated to them for legal fees and material supplies as well.
These were the contents of the first box...

And these are part of what's going into the second box. We're still filling up the second one, but it's getting there. This box will probably get mailed out in a couple of days. My heart-sister has also donated two triangular shawls that she made, so I'll be mailing those out along with anything we make ourselves.
The scrunchies are just sort of a "fun" thing to include. As I mentioned, they do have kids out there also. They've got enough on the site at this point that they've actually set up a school at the camps, and well... I was experimenting with the hair ties, and liked how they came out... so we're tossing them in as just something fun for the girls or women who like them. They were really easy and quick to make.. only about 15 minutes a piece; I just worked the yarn over the black hair rubber bands.

Earth tones are my favorites also. I did things in a wide variety of colors for this, so they could hand them out to anyone who needed it. But I have to agree. The earthy colors are my favorites.I LOVE #9. Greens and Browns, totally my earthy happy place colors! Nice work hon~
They didn't feel like they took too much time. The blanket took me about two weeks... maybe two or three hours a night. The shawl was about the same, really. But what is a long shawl, really, other than a wearable blanket? LOLLovely work Seliah and very time consuming to make.
Mmm.... we'll say 2.5 hours per night... 7 nights in a week... 2 weeks.lol...how many hours Seliah? Two weeks constantly working on them or are you just really quick?
