The Pink Scarf Project
My beautiful friend Vicki, of the blog "2 Bags Full", has created an AMAZING year-long event/project to raise awareness and support for breast cancer patients. She is asking for donations of pink scarves from anyone and everyone in the blogosphere who will be kind enough to oblige. She is generously giving away a GORGEOUS, one-of-a-kind wrap that she knitted especially for this project. If you have ever seen her knitted nests, you know that she can't make anything that isn't just perfection itself. (If you haven't been so fortunate as to have seen the nests, go here to see my personal favorite.)
I've always said I know only enough about knitting to be able to make a scarf. Well, perfect! I'll be sending her at least one of those. I also know (marginally better, if I'm honest) how to crochet a bit, and I will be creating a scarf (or 10) by that method. I'm not going to sugar coat it- I want to win that wrap! (Credit for construction will actually go to Lucy Jane, though.)
But much more than that, I want to help Vicki in this worthy cause. Many of you don't know that someone in my family has had a brush with this awful disease- fortunately it was caught and removed quickly and without much fuss and bother. But sadly, many, many women are not that fortunate.
So here's an extra incentive to Vicki's wonderful project: Anytime you send her a scarf and post a comment on her Pink Scarf Project Page that you have done so, come here (there will be a button on my sidebar shortly) and post a comment telling me that you have done so, and you will have an entry to win this Lucy Jane Pennybright "Hope" elephant, complete with her very own pink scarf! (The mailing address to send the scarves and all of the wonderful details are on her blog at the above link.)
The drawing will be held NEXT October 1st when Vicki's project ends, AND I will also accept comments on this Lucy Jane post about the project. (But only one entry for the ellie per scarf made and sent!! I'm just allowing you to choose which blog you leave your entry on!)
So what are you waiting for?? Go to Vicki's blog, find out all the details, and start knitting (or crocheting, sewing, or whatever it is you do) a pink scarf to send her way!! Best of luck winning the wrap and/or "Hope"!
PS- Here is Lucy's first scarf to send. What do you think? :)
