THE PINK SCARF PROJECT

Vickie of www.twobagsfull.blogspot.com has a wonderful project going on thru 2013.  It is knitting pink scarves for women who are undergoing treatment for breast cancer. I have knit the two following ones and am getting ready to pop them in the mail.

People all over the world are participating in this project and if you can knit you would certainly be welcome to contribute.  I have done just a garter stitch on these two and added a nice fringe and they are very soft and cuddly.  Hopefully they will feel good to the 2 women who receive them. 

When I get out to buy more yarn I am going to continue knitting more.  I like doing this at night while watching/listening to tv.

I used bernat baby coordinates sweet stripes which is a sport weight yarn.  I used size 8 needles and put on 36 stitches - easy.  Knit any reasonable length - add fringe and you are done. I should have mentioned that the yarn is self striping.

I am a breast cancer survivor myself so know how these will be appreciated.

I have taken some more images of the Christmas Lillies in the garden and will post them to you.
I wish you and your husband a very fulfilling and prosperous New Year
