Friendship goes beyond boundaries of expectation

Julie Carr shows off the giant bedcover she crocheted for her friend at Richter Place.

Last week’s Squire story about Julie Carr, general friend of all who really showed her true colors by creating a truly enormous bedcover for her new acquaintance Vern Criner, was missing one key thing: a picture of the quilt she crocheted. See these two pictures including the beautiful bedcover, measuring an amazing nine feet two inches by six feet ten inches, and Carr and Criner together.

When Criner saw the fine work Carr creates from her Richter Place apartment, he asked what he likely expected was a modest favor. Could Carr please crochet a cover for his bed in his own apartment? Carr took him at his request and then some, using an amazing 22 skeins of yarn to craft what is nothing short of amazing for Criner’s queen-sized bed.

If anyone happens to see Carr out and about—she bowls at Rockford Lanes on Thursdays, loves to drive around thrift shopping, and is generally a very active 74—be sure to tell her you saw what a helpful heart, two months of hard work and a whole lot of yarn can turn into: a bed cover like no other.
