over the past couple of weeks i've been working on a scarf for the orphan federation of america's red scarf project. the pattern i knit is also a dishcloth pattern (which is totally why i chose it), the double bump scarf by missy angus (rav link). it's a great pattern - it produces a textured non-rolly scarf and is super easy to memorize, making it a very portable project.
i took this project practically everywhere with me - carpool line, soccer lessons, swimming lessons, and it also came camping with me the other weekend.
but now it is finished and i will have to find a new project to tag along around town with me.
if you haven't heard of it before, the red scarf project is a wonderful program sending care packages to foster kids who are now in college so they are out of the foster care system. i remember getting care packages from home when i was away at college, it always made my day, and i am happy to know that this scarf will go in a package that will help to make someone else's day just a little more special.
the ofa is accepting red scarves until december 15th, so you still have time to find some red yarn and send in a scarf. ( i linked to it above, but i'll do it again so you don't have to scroll back up) click here to go to the official page to learn more. there's also a group on ravelry full of helpful tips and links to great patterns.
