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 did not work on it every day but wrote down everything for one month and started crocheting afterwards. You can either do it that way or crochet very evening (or every time you actually have time for it, I know we are all busy!)

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.
