Mood Scarf Crochet Along

Hello and welcome to our first CAL!

What we are doing here is a scarf which shows the moods you had in one month. I already made mine and it is showing the moods of August.

I know he wasn‘t perfect but for me he was my personal hero. He came from a long line of stocking makers from a part of the Czech Republic and had to flee during WWII. For him (having lost nearly everything), making things gave him a lot of joy. Sadly he died when I was just 12 years old but I still remember him vividly – even today.
