Yes, it would be wrong to keep a yummy scarf one has knit for charity. I realize that. I shan’t keep this one, but may make another for me memememememememeeee.
What is this scarf of which I speak? This is my contribution to OFA Red Scarf Project, which is a fabulous thing. The point is to make a scarf you’d want for yourself, so check plus on that one. Two skeins of Malabrigo Worsted in sealing wax colorway, in a unisex pattern. I chose the surprisingly engaging Reversible Herringbone Scarf pattern by Sammie Carraher. It’s easily memorized, free and makes a darn nice scarf. My finished scarf is 8.5″ by 69″ unstretched and unblocked. It’s long enough to single or double neck wrap, which is rather important to me and did I mention reversible. Clearly these photos of me braving the California sunshine this morning makes me a scarf expert.
Have I inspired you to make a red scarf? You can send them in from 1 September to 15 December to the address on the OFA Red Scarf Project site.
