Crochet

Yes – you heard me, crochet is coming to Project Scarf.  Last year, Project Scarf was for knitters only.  Many of you expressed a desire to crochet segments, so for the 2nd annual, I will be accepting BOTH knit and crochet.  Please continue to keep the segments to 5″ wide, any length…keeping in mind that this will be dismantled and donated, so wearability is important.  For details on how to contribute, click on Join Us at the top of the page.

Also – for any of my followers who are remotely local – if you would like to contribute a section, I can now SUPPLY YOU WITH YARN if you are willing to come and pick it up, thanks to a generous donation from our Project Scarf Angel, Jeffrey Denecke at Knitting Fever, Inc.

I am proud to announce that work has officially begun on the Second Annual Project Scarf for 2012-2013!

I have already made 2 sections myself, and have received my first bag of contributed knitted sections, from our faithful knitter, Audrey in S. Plainfield, NJ.

Please feel free to print and distribute this 1st annual PS flyer to help us spread the word.

Also, for those of you who have been following the Project Scarf blog, all stats have been updated on the website, so please visit us at http://www.projectscarf.org…and be sure to check all the pages, especially Knitters, Where in the World, The Buzz, and  How Long?

And special thanks to another Angel,  Jeffrey Denecke at Knitting Fever, Inc., who just donated two huge boxes of absolutely spectacular specialty yarns…next year’s scarf recipients will be dressing in STYLE!

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”

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:

Hey Betsy,


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!
