Friends in Love Scarf - Hooker Romance Challenge Winner - Congratulations spiffyspooner!

Voting ended today on our Hooker Romance EtsyHookers Creative Challenge No. 5. For this challenge members were asked to create a crocheted item that best represents the theme of romance, love, and friendship. Each entry was also required to include an additional embellishment such as a ribbon, button, bead, etc.

spiffyspooner’s entry, Friends in Love Scarf, won the hearts of the voters.


From the item description: “This 64" long scarf will warm your neck and your heart. One of the beautiful things about this scarf is that it gives the illusion of being a double scarf; but it is one scarf with two layers. The 5 heart buttons along the side allow the scarf to be buttoned at any point along the scarf so it can be worn in many ways.”

Please take a moment to visit spiffyspooner and see all of the beautiful items she has to offer. From her gorgeous scarves, and amazing afghans, you’ll be sure to find something lovely that you’ll want to make your own.
