- and so it grows
So I arrived home from the latest sojourn to be greeted by TWO more Project Scarf packages!
Special thanks to Pam J. from Oklahoma City, who sent 2 lovely scarf sections, totalling 64 inches in length.
Pam had this to say about Project Scarf:
“Love this idea – used up two old skeins of yarn for this – such an awesome project”
- Pam J., Oklahoma City
Thank YOU Pam, for joining Project Scarf! You are now an official member of our Project Scarf Wall of Fame :-).
The second box was from Jennifer Marsh of Huntsville, Alabama, founder of the International Fiber Collaborative. Please check out her Dream Rocket Project – it is SO cool, and very similar in spirit to Project Scarf.
Here’s what Jennifer had to say about Project Scarf:
I just wanted to let you know that on my way out of Columbus, OH yesterday, I dropped a box off at the post office for ‘Project Scarf’ which I am inspired by. It is not much, but I hope something in the box helps. You will find some hand washed, carted, and spun wool in which I did during a sheep project of mine back in grad school. I have a whole bin of it that just sits unused, and thought some how it might come in handy.
This is a picture of a performance I did after I created a ‘cozy’ type outfit out of the sheep wool to place back on the sheep after crocheted. It was a fun project, but I know that the farmer thought I was nuts. 🙂

Jennifer sent a box filled with goodies from our wish list – it was like Christmas in July! Inside was her gorgeous wool, an assortment of notecards and envelopes, quart size ziplocs, and some brand new crochet hooks (which I DO use for joining scarf sections). Also, she enclosed brochures about her Dream Rocket Project, which I look forward to passing along. Jennifer has now officially become a Project Scarf Angel. Thank you Jennifer, and I look forward to a continued relationship!
Here are the vitals since my last report:
