Check out this great article on craftivism featuring Project Scarf and KnitLit by Leila Cook in the August 1-2  issue of OM Times.  Titled “Project Scarf: Changing the World…One Stitch at a Time” it is in the “Movers and Shakers” section, dedicated to individuals and organizations whose examples and actions make this world a brighter place for all of us.

I would like to thank the AMAZING Leila Cook, for giving me the opportunity to reflect and share, and for supporting Project Scarf and helping me to get the word out.  Also, heartfelt thanks go to DeZengo Moore of Humanity Healing, who publishes OM Times.  Humanity Healing is a Nondenominational Network committed to Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Healing and Growth through Education and Spiritual Activism.  Click here to read more about them…Please check them out!

Sorry it has been a while folks…life has been, shall we say, for lack of a better word “busy”.

Meanwhile, Project Scarf continues to grow, both in length and fellowship.  Gratitude is my word of the day, week, month, year, lifetime.  Scarves keep coming in, kind words keep coming in, and stay tuned for another article!  This one will be in OM Times, written by the fabulous and multi-talented Leila Cook.  I’ll post the link as soon as it’s up.

So, I have attached storyteller Kate Dudding’s gorgeous sections, pictured here:

And then I laid out the entire scarf to measure.  First, I learned the hard way that it is best to roll it up backwards, rather than just unrolling the whole thing (which resulted in a twisted, tangled MESS.)

P.S. being unrolled for measurement

Next, I had to lay it out in sections, and actually used my husband’s work tape measure, rathy than my flimsy (TOO short!) knitting tape measure.

Next, I labeled every 10 feet, as another thing I have discovered is that my short term memory must be going.  I cannot tell you HOW many times I have lost count and had to start all over again!  And voila – we are up to…

93 feet and 9 inches!

Here are a few other things I’ve come across over the past few days that I’d like to share with you.

My new friend Leila Cook works with Humanity Healing.  Here is how they describe themselves:

Humanity Healing is a Nondenominational Network committed to Physical, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual Healing and Growth through Education and Spiritual Activism.

Spiritual Activism is expressed by Compassion in Action.

We believe that when we help others through compassionate action, we Heal ourselves and through us, Humanity as a whole.

Leila also writes for an online magazine called OM Times.  Their subtitle is: “Holistic Living – Spiritually Focused – Green Adventures”.  The layout is beautiful and easy to navigate – check out a sample issue by clicking here.

Some other fun random stuff:

A new blog I’m following, is called “Loom Dude“, which is a blog for guys who knit.  I’m always looking for info about grown men who knit, because I always get boys interested in joining my KnitLit Program at school, and I like to show them REAL examples of guys who knit.  (It is SO cool, by the way.)

Sense of Fashion is an online marketplace for independent fashion designers to sell their own stuff.  Here is what they have to say about themselves:

Sense of Fashion goody

The Sense of Fashion Vision
We are the marketplace for fashion.

And like any real marketplace, we are alive: upcoming designers meet trendsetter fashionistas, photographers and stylists exchange views and recommendations as fashion bloggers exchange concepts of personal style,  while shopping, selling and setting new trends.

For designers, Sense of Fashion provides an online shop with built-in marketing tools, a live clientele base and access to clear and open communication with buyers, fans and other designers.

For trendsetters and fashion fans we provide a stage to display original styles, favorite designers and shopping decisions.

To shoppers we offer a variety of unique fashion items from all over the world, and the opportunity to discover young talent just as it breaks through, as well as the chance to buy items which will one day be collector items, alongside one-of pieces, vintage and curated collections from boutique owners. 

TTFN!
