So here are some highlights of the travels and progress of Project Scarf since last we met…

I have been visiting my Dad in Harpswell, Maine for a few days, and as you can see, Project Scarf came right along!

Some excerpts from Project Scarf’s Journal:

Day 12

June 28, 2011

Project Scarf hits the road for Harpswell, Maine to visit Betsy’s Dad, Lin Rodman, with Phoenix and Beauty along for company. Today the scarf is 11’8″ long (up 6.5″ from yesterday.)

Day 13

June 29, 2011

Betsy and Peter’s 20th (gulp!) wedding anniversary…a rainy morning followed by beautiful sunshine…P.S. leads an anniversary parade to the ocean:

P.S. takes the stairs to the beach

Betsy comes up with the idea to label the scarf length as she goes (thus avoiding having to measure the entire length each day, which at some point will become quite a project in itself), but also realizes that there will be a stretch factor over time.  I also came up with the brilliant idea to mark where I start in the morning so I only have to measure that day’s progress (duh.)

Day’s progress: scarf is now 14’9″ (up 37″ from yesterday.)

Day 14

June 30, 2011

Got together with my oldest childhood friend Kate Greeley today, who blessed Project Scarf with a row.  Thanks Kate!  After that we went strawberry picking – P.S. stayed at home…

Betsy oldest friend adds a row to Project Scarf in Bowdoinham, Maine.

By the end of the day, P.S. is 15’11” long.

Day 15

July 1, 2011

Project Scarf accompanies us to the tennis courts at Fulle Field in Harpswell.

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!
