America The Beautiful

Name

America The Beautiful written by Katharine Lee Bates, and composed by church organist and choirmaster Samuel A. Ward

My first impression on looking at this scarf was a landscape from sea to mountain top based on the arrangement of the yarn pieces. That led me to thinking about the lyrics from America The Beautiful: “from sea to shining sea.”

Upon further examination, I realized that the scraps represent the different people who live in America, all coming together for the good of a productive and functional scarf…government, country; it could happen!

I will leave you with this “crown thy good with brotherhood,” you frikkin’ idiots! The idiots being all the people I hate.

America The Beautiful Scarf

Nine stitches, crocheted using seed stitch. I definitely start my projects with a looser tension, indicative of the varying width. Then again, it could be the yarn weight differences, but I doubt it because they all seemed pretty equal to me.
