As my grandfather Rodman used to say – no matter how long they were away for!

Project Scarf Update

Day 18

The big news: I arrived home from Maine to a package waiting from one of our Facebook followers, Kathleen Ganster of Allison Park, PA,.  Inside was Kathleen’s 41″ section of beautiful scarf, (her section is pictured above) along with 2 lovely beaded bracelets from BeadforLife.  They are a really cool organization which helps impoverished Ugandan women – please check them out and support them.  (You get gorgeous jewelry out of the deal, too!)

Up until now, all of my scarf contributors have been local family, friends, students, and community members.  So a special THANKS goes to Kathleen for being our first contributor from cyberspace and the general public.  Way to go Kathleen…you have been added to our “Wall of Fame” – Let’s hope that you are the first of many, many!

The Stats:

Thanks to Kathleen’s contribution, Project Scarf is now 255 inches long (that’s 21 feet and 3 inches).

The hands of 9 knitters, and counting, have blessed the project so far.

Project Scarf has been worked on in New York, New Jersey, Maine and Pennsylvania.  Let’s add to that list!

I received a Facebook message from Kathleen in Pittsburgh last night with a photo of 41 inches of gorgeous scarf soon to be on it’s way…she may have the honor of being the first contributor from the general public!

Our first public contribution!

Thank you Kathleen!

Yesterday was another housekeeping day in preparation for a week away in Maine visiting my dad.

So…I will be away from the Project Scarf website until about July 4th.  Blessedly, I will have no computer access and poor cell phone access.  I am looking forward to a week of no technology and lots of knitting.  I’ll see you all back here in a week!

By the way, yesterday’s scarf progress (Day 10) was about one inch…hey, it’s something!
