You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, 'I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.'

You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

Faux Fur....Fad or Fashion?

The problem with finishing all the projects that I have ever  started is that by now many of them have gone "out of style".  Take the once popular"Fake Fur" or as the more refined say "Faux Fur".  Just  few years ago it was all the rage. Funky looking scarves were in vogue and almost everyone including me had one. So of course I ran out and bought several skeins with the intent of making scarves for me and my sisters.  Something more important must have came up because the yarn was packed away and eventually forgotten......until today.  So I ask you....fake fur:    IN  or OUT?  Does it really matter? No I say, because I have started knitting my scarf.  I remember choosing pink because it is the color that represents the fight against Breast Cancer.

  October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

I have been cancer free for 20 years  and you can be sure as the weather gets chilly my sisters and I will be

"styling" our pink "out of style" scarves.

I've been crocheting for over 40 years and hate to tell you how many unfinished projects I have in my closet. Huzzahs for you finishing the scarf to honor your battle with cancer.
