Entry: It's alivvvvvvve! Monday, November 23, 2009



Yeah, I'm still here!  Working on the holiday knitting.  I innocently asked a friend, we'll call her 'Penny', for a couple skeins of acrylic from her stash to match some ombres I had.  I'm using them for the WWII Museum's Knit-Your-Bit campaign.  They collect and distribute scarves to Veterans' hospitals and centers.  They'll also take lap blankets and afghans.

A few days later she shows up and dumps this on my doorstep.  And promptly flees amid my protests.

That's 5 trash bags full.


I counted them, there are 100 skeins there!  100 skeins!  And a good deal of them are the big 8 and 16 oz. ones.

I have such a wonderful and generous friend, I'm overwhelmed!  She went through her stash and picked coordinating colors.  So far I've made about 4 or 5 lapghans. 

They're a great go-to project(as are the scarves) for when you need a busy-hands-no-thinking-project.  I always have a blankie and a scarf on the needles to work on in between other stuff.

PS: the sweater is done except for the sleeves. Oh the shame.  It fits well, I have the buttons, but I put it down and haven't picked it back up.  Hangs head...

The good thing about your information is that it is explicit enough for students to grasp. Thanks for your efforts in spreading academic knowledge.

Ack, I don't know if that is kindness or urge to de-stash. I admire your will to knit all that acrylic for a good cause!
