My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Sonja Gasper!!!
Sonja Gasper (#5671) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning a Beginner Level Crochet Merit Badge!
“My grandmother taught me how to chain and do the single and double crochet stitches when I was just old enough to manage a hook. We have a great yarn shop here in town called The Black Purl, and the owner helped me get started again with some beautiful yarn by Ella Rae. I used a 5.5 mm hook and retaught myself the single stitch, working especially on consistent tension, making an infinity scarf. It is 60″ around and 6″ wide and took me about 8 hours total to do. It curled, so I also had to learn how to block a project as well.
I wore it for an hour and then popped it in the mail to a friend who is in Texas (and is not used to the cold) as a surprise! I have already started a new one for myself, checking the Internet for more things to learn, and have added on double, basket, and grit stitches as more of a sampler scarf, but in the same color. It is going much faster this time!”
Love those sapphire colors for January! Very pretty and it looks so warm and comfy!
