This is not for The Red Hat Ladies

**Tomorrow's post will discuss the poll results**

red and purpleTook this photo before tucking in my last end. Straight knitting except for the details on the ends. I used Plymouth Encore Washable Wool and love the feel of this. This scarf has a rather sorted past, lol. It couldn't decide what it was going to be. First it was going be solid red (I was going to donate it to The Red Scarf Project), but ran out of yarn. Had had the red for eons and eons and didn't even attempt matching it. Grabbed the purple I had on hand for fun and decided I loved the fun and funky half and half scarf. In fact, I might make a few more this way. Now it looks like it should go to someone in The Red Hat Society; but it's close to 7 inches wide, it's washable wool and therefore very warm, and it's 6 foot long so will keep someone warm.....went in the last bag for a family shelter along with many of your wonderful items.

MITTENS........Mittens will be October's focus, and we never get enough of those. I know they're not the easiest things to make. We do have a few patterns posted folks. As you think about making mittens and or reviewing patterns...think about adding length to the cuff; helps make them warmer. Thanks!

  1. I like the half-and-half scarf; it looks very "designer."

  2. Thanks Harvest, I was pleased the way it turned out too, especially since it wasn't planned that way.

Where are You and Your Yarn From?

I'm trying to identify where everyone is from, partially for fun. Take a look at the map. Also, believe it will aid me in cases where we have several people with the same name. Please look at the lists of bloggers and non bloggers and see if I have the state you hail from. If not, please leave a comment and let me know.

Additionally, we've had help from Scotland, England, Germany Puerto Rico, Canada, and France! They don't appear on the map, but their help is still greatly appreciated.

Where The People Who Donate Come From, is your state represented?
