Archive for the ‘Where in the World is Project Scarf?’ Category

First of all, in mentioning the length of P.S. in my earlier posts (93 feet and 9 inches, soon to be over ONE HUNDRED!), I forgot to mention that the DIAMETER is now over 18 inches (here’s proof):

3 feet across!

 

Kind of fun to see it against one of my very first photos:

And so it began...

 

Next:

Project Scarf has been to TWO theatrical productions over the past two days!

Last night, P.S. came with me and sat on a blanket at Tallman Mountain State Park in Orangetown, NY, where my star actor son played the Duke of Exeter in Shakespeare’s Henry V.  This amazing production was put on by the Children’s Shakespeare Theater, (they can also be found on Facebook) directed by the magical Diana Green.  Everyone did a great job, and it was a blissful setting for knitting and theater-going, with PERFECT weather.  If you’d like to see pictures of these talented young thespians, click here.

 

Then this afternoon, Project Scarf had the pleasure of accompanying me to the Penguin Repertory Theater in Stony Point, where we saw Shipwrecked! It will be running through September 4th, and tickets are selling fast, so if you are local, get yours soon! Many thanks to Artistic Director Joe Brancato and Executive Director Andrew M. Horn (all around cool, talented guys) for inviting us as their guests today.

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!

I also saw dear friend Ann, and we sat in her garden and ate quiche made with fresh picked veggies from her own back yard…YUM.

Good people, good food, lots of knitting, and silliness!

OK – so Project Scarf visited the dentist AND the endodontist today…for anyone in the Rockland area, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Garry Bey – SO, if you ever need a root canal, you need have no fear.  This was truly a pain free procedure, and best of all, I AM NO LONGER IN PAIN!

(I also love my dentist of many years, Dr. Papo, by the way)
