There is so much good stuff going on with the Red Scarf Project I just had to take the time to shout out about some of it.
Theresa's* dad taught himself how to knit so he could make scarves just for this project! Go read his story, if you haven't already. It made me grin all day yesterday. People at work were asking me what was up with that. I told them they wouldn't understand. :)
Interweave is endorsing the program again this year, and they have a sweet Ann Budd reversible scarf pattern available by pdf. Check it out.
I hear tell (news travels fast) that Men Who Knit are joining us. Welcome, Team Testosterone! Don't forget to send me your scarf pictures so I can show them off in the gallery. I'm expecting some good stuff from these guys.
Get a load of the gorgeous scarf my dear friend Kim is making. That woman is a style maven, if ever I saw one.
And beautiful scarf pics are piling in for the gallery in the Red Scarf Blog. The program is snowballing!
And in the "what goes around comes around" department, I was notified by Rachel H. (the other Rachel H., heh) that my hat was the first to arrive at her house and therefore I won....you're not gonna believe it.... 300 yards of beautiful red Schaefer yarn. You know what I'm going to do with it; oh yes, you do.
*I don't know if Theresa knows this, but hers was the very first blog I ever read, and therefore I give her credit (or hold her responsible, however you want to look at it) for getting me into blogging. I Googled "provisional cast-on" as a brand-spanking-new knitter a few years ago, and it brought me to her blog. At the time I had not ever heard the word "blog." It kept coming up in reading her entries and others that she linked to. I remember having to then Google the word "blog" to find out what it was all about. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Now we have met in real life and are real-life friends. I can attest she is as lovely as her blog.
How did you start blogging or reading blogs?
