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.
America The Beautiful shall be donated to charity at the El Segundo Slipt Stitchers guild meeting in July.
