Red Scarf Saga

Red_scarf_finished

This scarf has been long sent off, but I have been out of town for the last couple of weeks, which has kept me from posting.  Man, am I happy to be home!  At the beginning of January, I ordered yarn to make Danica for the Red Scarf Project.  By the middle of January, still no yarn.  I am convinced that the mail was so slow due to the great freeze of 2007, during which it did not freeze in my area, but everything shut down.  I decided to take matters into my own hands and went to the local craft store to get some yarn that would work.  I picked up the only acrylic I can tolerate (as I wanted it to be washable) and got to work.  Luckily, I completed this scarf in about a week, just in time to send off.  It went pretty quickly because it was just a series of squares, and it’s much easier to wrap my head around doing a few squares at a time then it is to do several rows.  I really enjoyed my first attempt at entrelac and hope that the student who receives my scarf enjoys wearing it.  And, now I have some yarn that was originally ordered for this scarf to use for something else.

This is a big week for us, as today I am 20 weeks along and on Tuesday we will find out if the little beast is a boy or a girl!  I am SO ready to know so that I can get to knitting baby things and get going on the baby quilt.  I’ll share the news with you as soon as I have an opportunity on Tuesday or Wednesday.
