I am all crafty and shit

I have been a crocheting fool lately! I think it is the election season. While watching the presidential debates or even CNN, I crochet to keep myself from SCREAMING at the television. These claims that Obama is "paling around with terrorists" really piss me off. McCain and Palin are planting these ridiculous ideas in their supporters' heads and then acting confused when people yell "Terrorist! Kill him!" at their rallies. AHHHH! Wait - what was I talking about? Oh yes, crocheting.

So, I usually crochet scarves in all one color. Like this...
But I have lots of scrap yarn laying around, so I decided to combine some colors. The scarves turned out really cute...I am working on another scarf right now - it is purple and blue. Election day needs to hurry up and get here, because I have no idea who I am going to give all these scarves too.

You could always donate them to the Salvation Army or some other charitable organization.

My Grandmom used to crochet baby hats & give to the local hospital.

I want to get into knitting and crocheting. I think it's awesome. Do you do hats too? You could donate these to a hospital, like a Children's Hospital, or to Susan G Komen. And you could probably write the costs off :)

Ya know...I never could learn to crochet. My mom tried teaching me many times but she's a lefty and I'm a righty and it all got very confusing.
